Teen Shoots at Uber Driver After Argument Over Social Media Posts

A 16-year-old teen fired several shots at his Uber driver's car following an argument over social media posts, San Diego Police said.

The incident happened late Saturday night at after 10 p.m. when a 16-year-old and an 18-year-old called an Uber to pick them up in Mission Beach.


The driver came and picked up the teens, dropping them off at a home in San Diego's Valencia Park neighborhood, police said.

When the teens got out, the 16-year-old realized he left his phone in the Uber and called the driver. The driver agreed to return the teen's phone after he finished driving the new passenger he had just picked up.

The new passenger went through the teen's phone and saw he was talking badly about the driver. They began posting on social media about it, according to SDPD.

When the driver returned the teen's phone, the two got in an argument over the social media posts, police said.

Eventually, police said, the driver drove away. As he left, the 16-year-old fired several shots, police said.

The bullets shattered some of the car's windows, police said.

A representative for Uber told NBC 7 San Diego they have been in contact with the driver involved and are thankful he is okay.

The 16-year-old was arrested a short time later. He has not been identified.

The incident is under investigation.

No other information was immediately available.

why would you let a passenger go through another riders phone? He didn't deserve to be shot at but the driver is a @ss.
Btw, all drivers should be armed!! If your not your a damn fool.

Yes sir, I 100% agree with you. However in this situation you're already driving away from the scene and the threat on your life. If you were to return and retaliate with lethal force then you could easily be facing homicide charges. But I cannot agree with you more with being prepared. Also proper training in the use of a firearm is crucial.

What will a self driving car do when shot at ?

Will it even know ?

How will it respond ?

Will it recognize screams of terrified trapped passengers ?
