Clayton Hubbird, 31, was charged on Oct. 2 with first-degree reckless homicide and use of a dangerous weapon in connection with the slaying of 35-year-old Regina “Mya” Allen in Milwaukee on Aug. 29, WITI reported.

Prosecutors said surveillance video shows Hubbird and Allen in a conversation inside a gas station before the shooting, according to the station.

Hubbird then left and got into a Chevy Tahoe. Police said Allen eventually also entered the vehicle and the two drove to her apartment, where a witness told detectives he saw two people in an argument before hearing a gunshot and Allen scream that she was shot.

Allen managed to call 911 and she told an officer before she died from her injuries that she had met the man who shot at a gas station and he was driving a Chevy Tahoe, police said.

Detectives located the vehicle the following day in Wauwatosa.

He is due back in court on Oct. 11.
