A Pennsylvania man is accused of killing a teenager and then sending video of the victim’s last moments to another person, authorities said.
Joseph Koller, 20, allegedly fatally shot 17-year-old Isaiah Dennis Anderson and wounded two other people — a male and female — on May 9 in Pittsburgh.
Police were tipped off that the shooters were in a silver BMW, and detectives located surveillance videos that led them to identifying Koller, who owned the vehicle, as a suspect in the case, police said, Trib Live reported.
According to a criminal complaint, detectives were able to track the BMW to the shooting by following a series of videos along the car’s route.
Police claimed that in one video, two people can be seen exiting the vehicle at a certain point, walking through a lot, and allegedly shooting at least 29 rounds at the victim, Anderson, as well as a second person.
The two alleged shooters then fled, police said.
Anderson was struck multiple times and suffered gunshot wounds to his head and torso, the complaint states.
Police pulled over Koller in the BMW 10 days after the fatal shooting.
According to the complaint, police looking through the phone of a witness who was in Koller’s vehicle during the stop allegedly found a text from Koller to the witness that stated: “I have a stain” — which could refer to committing a shooting or murder, police claimed, according to Trib Live.
Police alleged Koller also sent the witness video of Anderson after he was shot and was lying on the sidewalk while responding cops attempted to save his life, the outlet reported.
Koller faces multiple charges, including homicide, aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, conspiracy, and hindering apprehension.
He was booked into the Allegheny County jail without bail.
