In an emotional hearing, a judge denied bail Wednesday for a man accused of fatally shooting another man in a Target parking lot.

Family of the victim cursed the defendant, called him a murderer and said they hope he never gets out of prison.

The attorney for David Edward Bloebaum had requested bail be set at $10,000 for his client, who is charged with one count of first-degree murder and two counts of carrying a firearm. He will continue to be held in the Oklahoma County jail.

“I don't find any special circumstances that would warrant a bond,” Oklahoma County District Judge Kenneth C. Watson said.

Jasen Yousif, 29, was killed about 4:30 p.m. Sept. 28 in the parking lot of Target, 13924 N Pennsylvania Ave. Police said road rage may have triggered the deadly shooting.

Yousif tried to flee before being shot multiple times, according to a probable cause affidavit and surveillance video.

Prosecutor Tom Schurr told the judge Bloebaum shot Yousif five times without getting out of his vehicle. He called Bloebaum, who has a prior road rage conviction, a danger to the community.
