Uber Confirms Driver Was Working For Company When Found Dead In Inglewood

INGLEWOOD — Uber confirmed Monday that a driver killed in Inglewood was working for the company at the time.


Andre Jamal Bayyan, 27, of Los Angeles was found shot to death in a vehicle around 4 a.m. Sunday outside a house in the 3700 block of West 109th Street, according to police.

Uber confirmed that Bayyan was apparently on a trip at the time of the shooting. But it is not clear if the victim had already picked up a passenger.
