Records: Man accused in fatal Uber shooting says he was high

August 30, 2019

OXON HILL, Md. (AP) — Authorities say a Maryland man accused of killing an Uber driver and another passenger told officers that he was high at the time.

News outlets report court records say 42-year-old Aaron Lanier Wilson Jr. told authorities he doesn’t remember what happened during the Tuesday rideshare because he was on PCP. They say Wilson told officers he “messed up” and “everything happened so fast.”

Wilson is charged with first- and second-degree murder in the deaths of 46-year-old Beaudouin Tchakounte and 32-year-old Casey Xavier Robinson. Prince George’s County police Capt. Filepe Ordono says they were strangers.

Wilson’s attorney says his client’s long dreadlocks don’t match an eyewitness account of a man with short, curly hair fleeing the crime scene. Wilson’s set to appear in court next month.
