Police said 27-year-old Trevon McMorris nearly ran into an officer before striking Madrid Salcido's car after authorities responded to a suspicious vehicle report in the area.

McMorris is currently in jail and facing a murder charge.

According to court records, McMorris has a history of traffic violations, including past convictions for driving with a suspended or revoked license and driving without proof of insurance. McMorris was also convicted after officers found he was in possession of marijuana during a traffic stop.
