Dashcam video shows the moment an Ohio man killed an Uber driver who was sent to pick up a package at his home.

Police say William Brock, 81, shot Loletha Hall, 61, because he mistakenly believed she was a scammer.

Hall was dispatched to Brock’s South Charleston home to pick up a package on March 25.

Investigators say Brock had been on the phone with a scammer who told him his nephew was in jail and needed bond.

The unknown scammer told Brock to pay $12,000 for his nephew’s release.

The scammer hired Hall through the Uber app. She believed she was sent there to pick up a package at Brock’s home.

But Brock confronted Hall in the driveway and pointed a handgun at her. He demanded to know the names of the people who called him.

When Hall turned to leave, he snatched her cell phone out of her hand, police said. Brock then shot Hall in the foot when she tried to get into her car.

There was a “subsequent scuffle at the door of Ms. Hall’s vehicle,” the Clark County Sheriff’s Office said. Brock then shot her two more times, before calling 911.

When deputies arrived, Brock approached them and said, “I’m sure glad you guys are here. I’m being scammed.”

Brock told them Hall was there to “take my money.”

Hall was transported to a local hospital, where she died.

Deputies noted Brock was bleeding from a head wound. He told them Hall slammed his head into her car door.

A deputy wrote in an incident report: “He provided he didn’t want to shoot her but he thought she was going to kill him.”

Brock told investigators he had been on the phone for “a couple of hours” with a man claiming he had his nephew in jail and needed bond money.

Brock pleaded not guilty to murder, felonious assault, and kidnapping during a court appearance on Wednesday. He was released on $200,000 bond.

Uber called Hall’s death “a horrific tragedy”.

An Uber spokesperson wrote in an emailed statement, “Our hearts continue to be with Loletha’s loved ones as they grieve.”
