The driver, identified by police as Michael A. Hancock, 29, is being held without bond in a Denver jail on suspicion of first-degree murder, USA Today reported.

Hancock’s mother, Stephanie Hancock, told KUSA-TV that he’s been driving for Uber for a couple of years to make extra money. He also works at a youth group home as a counselor, she said.

“He’s a husband, a father, a college student. He works two jobs,” Stephanie Hancock told the station. “It’s a terrible, terrible thing that happened. We don’t know anything else.”

Hancock’s parents told KUSA-TV that he had a concealed carry permit from his days of working as a security guard.
