Philadelphia man charged in deadly shooting he claimed was accidental, police say

A Philadelphia man is facing murder charges after authorities said he claimed to have accidentally shot the driver of a car he was riding in last weekend. 

Marcus Moore, 34, was arrested Wednesday and charged with homicide in the shooting death of Maurice Jones early Sunday morning. 

According to investigators, Moore and two others were inside a Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by Jones when he was shot on I-95 near Columbus Boulevard. 

Police said Moore drove the Jeep to the emergency room at Jefferson Hospital and left in the car by the time officers arrived. Jones was later pronounced dead.

Police later found the Jeep abandoned near the intersection of Front Street and Washington Avenue. Investigators found a bullet hole in the driver's seat and the center console. 

When Moore was arrested on Wednesday, authorities say he confessed to the shooting and claimed that it was accidental.
