An Uber rideshare passenger was shot and killed while inside the vehicle on Friday (April 26) in Harris County, authorities have said.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said deputies responded to a call from an Uber driver, who picked up a fare about 1.5 miles away.

The Uber driver stated that a male fare got into the back of the car when another rider approached the vehicle and shot the victim multiple times.

The driver fled to a parking lot at TC Jester and FM1960 and awaited law enforcement. The suspect fled the scene on foot.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the filmer.

A second crime scene and containment was established at the location of the shooting, TC Jester and Laurel.

The suspect is described as a black male, who was wearing a white shirt, tan pants and had shoulder-length dreadlocks.
