The shootings occurred at approximately 3 PM on Oct. 9, 2021, when Hill pulled up next to another vehicle at a stoplight at the busy intersection of Boeingshire Road and Shelby Drive.

Video captured by a Real-Time Crime Center pole camera showed Hill leaning out of the driver’s seat and shooting into the car next to his, DA said.

A passenger in that car, Donquez Driver was struck six times and died from his wounds.

Driver’s 59-year-old aunt, who was in the driver’s seat, was struck once in the back and has undergone multiple surgeries.

Hill was developed as a suspect and was arrested two days later.
