An Uber driver is behind bars for allegedly shooting at two people after picking them up from a bar in Downtown New Orleans.
According to police, Ahmad Ahmad picked up two riders from the bar Sunday night and headed towards the Westbank, but their destination point was set to go to Kenner.
After confronting Ahmad about going in the wrong direction, an argument ensued and the riders called the police and ordered another Uber driver.
When the second Uber arrived, Ahmad retrieved a gun from his vehicle and began to shoot at the two riders before he eventually drove off.
He was later arrested and booked on aggravated assault with a firearm, theft and illegal use of weapons charges.
The New Orleans Police Department is asking anyone with information regarding this incident to contact Fourth District detectives.
