A San Antonio man is accused of climbing inside an Uber vehicle and then shooting and murdering the driver.

Police said Dominique Croom, 30, shot Robert Diaz, 37, several times around 8 p.m. on March 9 in northeast San Antonio and fled the scene.

Diaz died at a hospital.

KSAT-TV reports witness reports and video evidence led officers to Croom, who was arrested Thursday. One witness claimed the Uber vehicle drove over a sidewalk and stopped in a wooded field.

Croom now is charged with murder and criminal trespass. The San Antonio Express-News reported he's held on $200,000 bond.

It's not clear if Croom and Diaz knew each other.
