GoFundMe for UberEats Driver Killed In Carjacking Raises Over $400,000

(Newsweek) A GoFundMe campaign set up to help the family of an UberEats driver who was killed during an armed carjacking has raised more than $400,000.

Mohammad Anwar, 66, was assaulted with a stun-gun during a carjacking in the 1200 block of Van Street in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, the Metropolitan Police Department said in a news release. Two teenage suspects have been charged in connection to the attack.

A graphic video that was posted on Twitter on Saturday shows Anwar, near the driver’s side door, in a struggle with the suspects, yelling: “They’re thieves. This is my car!”

The video showed the suspects speeding off with Anwar still hanging onto the vehicle, and then crashing the car. The teenage girls were both seen climbing out of the vehicle unscathed while Anwar lay injured in the street.

Police said Anwar was transported to an area hospital and pronounced dead after “all lifesaving efforts failed.”

…The two girls—aged 13 and 15—have been charged with felony murder and armed carjacking…

Anwar, of Springfield, Virginia, was described as a “beloved husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and friend” on the GoFundMe page set up to pay for his funeral and to support his family.

The page, launched three days ago, had raised [$425,942] at the time of publication.
