Just before 3 o'clock this morning what should have been a normal ride-share turned into a nightmare. Denver police received a frantic 911 call from an Uber driver who had reportedly shot their passenger!
Via The Denver Channel:
"Police said the driver shot the passenger, an adult male, multiple times after getting into some kind of altercation inside the vehicle. According to emergency dispatch communications, the driver called 911 to report the shooting.
Officers on the scene attempted to perform CPR on the passenger but the man was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Neither the driver nor the passenger has been identified. Police said the driver is being interviewed at the police department headquarters.
Police are working to confirm whether the driver was working and whether the passenger was a paying customer at the time of the shooting."
At this time no identities are being released and the story is still developing. Stay tuned.
