An Uber Eats driver who police said shot and killed a customer turned himself in Monday afternoon.
According to WSB-TV, Robert Bivens, 37, arrived at the jail with his attorney. The Atlanta Police Department's Homicide Unit secured an arrest warrant for felony murder Monday.
The shooting happened Saturday night at a condominium on Pharr Road in Buckhead, Georgia.
Police said Ryan Thornton ordered food from Uber Eats and the driver delivered the food around 11:30 p.m. At some point, authorities said words were exchanged between Thornton and the driver.
The Uber Eats driver then shot the 30-year-old, police said.
Thornton died at Grady Memorial Hospital.
Uber said in a statement on Monday, saying Bivens no longer has access to the app:
“We are shocked and saddened by this senseless act of violence and our hearts go out to Ryan’s friends and family. We have been working with the Atlanta Police Department, and the driver can no longer access the app.”
A spokesperson for Uber told WSB-TV Bivens passed a background check and had only been an Uber Eats driver for about a week. Bivens was an Uber Eats delivery partner only and did not drive passengers.
Uber is working closely with the Atlanta Police Department on this investigation.
