A 29-year-old woman has been allegedly shot dead inside an Uber by her husband in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Seattle woman Jennifer Espitia had been out with her husband, 31-year-old Cameron Espitia on Saturday evening where the pair had been drinking and reportedly arguing.
According to court documents obtained by The Seattle Times, “He was not having a good night with his wife.”
In the early hours of Sunday morning, the pair ordered an Uber and according to the driver of the vehicle, continued to argue while in the car, with Jennifer sitting in the front seat and Cameron in the back.
En route the driver told police he heard a loud boom that, initially, he believed was a burst tyre but soon realised was gunfire, seeing that the woman sitting next to him had been shot in the head by her husband.
After ordering the man to continue driving, Cameron eventually told him to pull over, where he got out and reportedly stumbled into some nearby bushes. The driver immediately called 911, but tragically, Jennifer was pronounced dead at Seattle hospital shortly after.
