On Sunday, just before 5 p.m., driver Julian Leon III went to Adventure Island to pick up to potential riders - 23-year-old Austin Korb and 27-year-old Skylar Korb.

Nine bodies recovered after landslide buries scores in China
In total, 142 tourists were visiting the area and they are all alive, said Xu Zhiwen, executive deputy governor of the prefecture. Three people, a couple and their month-old baby, are the only ones rescued from the site on Saturday.

An Uber driver refused to allow two potential passengers to enter his vehicle because they were wet, which led to a verbal altercation, according to a release from TPD.

The trio began to argue, which turned physical.

The verbal altercation progressed into a physical one.

Leon, who police said felt in fear of his life, reached into his vehicle and grabbed a gun. As the group struggled over the gun, a round was sacked.
