Employees at the club, Heart, told police that on July 17, Camron Arquon Ellis, 18, and 51-year-old James Glover were at the Houston establishment together before leaving around 2:20 a.m., KTRK-TV reported.

Around 20 minutes later, surveillance video obtained by the station allegedly shows Glover pulling the teenager from an Uber and hitting him over the head with an object.
