SELLERSVILLE, Pennsylvania (WPVI) — A cellphone recording of a confrontation found on the iPhone of a Montgomery County murder victim led to an arrest in Bucks County, officials said Wednesday.
The Central Bucks Special Response took into custody 41-year-old Philly resident Eugene Ware on Wednesday morning in Sellersville.
Ware is accused of killing Tyrone Guy on Monday, November 21 at around 10 p.m. on the 900 block of West Main Street in Norristown.
Police responded to the sound of gunshots being fired and found the victim lying on the sidewalk with multiple gunshot wounds.
He was taken to Einstein Medical Center, where he died from his injuries.
Investigators found three cell phones at the scene. One of the phones was a black iPhone, which was later determined to belong to the victim.
According to police, the iPhone was recording video when investigators found it.
They stopped the recording and took the phone as evidence.
As part of their investigation, detectives reviewed the video on Guy’s cell phone.
Police say the video showed a confrontation between the victim and another man, who was later identified as Ware.
Investigators say Ware appeared to be hiding something behind his back.
They say Ware exchanges words with the victim, then hits the iPhone, knocking it to the ground.
Gunshots can be heard in the video, police said.
Investigators also discovered that the jacket Ware was wearing in the video is part of a clothing brand that he modeled and sold on social media.
Ware was taken into custody after a brief lull at a home in Sellersville, authorities say.
Ware was charged with first-degree murder, person not in possession of a firearm, and other felonies.
