He was charged with first-degree murder with a firearm.

An Uber driver who asked to not be identified told Channel 9 that his dashboard camera recorded the shooting.

In the video, you can hear five gunshots and see multiple drivers braking.

“Every morning, I pray to God that I get home safe, because that’s one of the fears,” he said.
