San Diego police are investigating a shooting on Sunday after a 16-year-old boy fired shots at his Uber driver’s car.

The teen and another 18-year-old man requested an Uber ride in Mission Beach around 10:40 p.m. Saturday, and were dropped off at 5500 San Onofre Terrace. 

The shooter realized he left his cellphone in the car and called the driver to return it, according to officials. The driver agreed to return the phone after dropping off another customer.

The driver then discovered the shooter was “talking bad” about the Uber driver on social media and they began sharing negative comments, according to police.

When the driver returned to give back the phone, the two began arguing. The 16-year-old then shot at the vehicle as the Uber driver drove away. The car windows were shattered but no injuries were reported.

The shooter was arrested later that night.
