Uber driver charged with murder after 'shooting pastor dead in road rage attack' | The Sun

AN Uber driver has been charged with murder after allegedly shooting a well-known pastor to death in a bout of road rage.

Deshawn Longmire, 23, reportedly shot Reverend Dr. Ronald K Mouton after the two got in an argument on the freeway.


Witnesses say they saw Longmire and Mouton arguing at a stoplight on the Gulf Freeway, in Texas.

Neither driver left their vehicle during the argument, and both began moving away after their spat.

But witnesses told police that when the two began driving again, the Uber driver “stretched his arm out of the driver window with a pistol in his hand” and shot at Moulton.

Longmire sped away from the incident, and was later pulled over after running a stop sign, police said.

According to court records, Longmire told detectives he was not in the area at the time of the shooting.

But investigators found Uber records showing he was in fact in the area at the time of Mouton's shooting.

The reverend, who had been a senior pastor at the East Bethel Missionary Baptist Church for more than 30 years, was pronounced dead at the scene just minutes from his church.

Mouton leaves behind a wife, four children, and 10 grandchildren.
