A teenager accused of shooting and killing a man inside a corner store in Chester, Pennsylvania, surrendered to police Wednesday evening.

Police said Muhammad McBride, 18, got into an argument with a man in his 20's who was getting coffee inside KNF Market along the 1100 block of West 3rd Street around 10:15 a.m. Wednesday.

McBride grabbed a coffee pot and struck the man in the head, police said. He then allegedly pulled out a gun and opened fire, shooting the man in the chest.

The victim died from his injuries. Officials have not yet revealed his identity.

Police and a SWAT team arrived in the area and searched inside a nearby home. McBride was not inside however.

Later Wednesday evening, a woman who identified herself as McBride's mother spoke to NBC10 about the shooting.

"I'm hurt for that man," she said. "He lost his life."

The woman told NBC10 she wanted her son to turn himself in.

A short time later, McBride surrendered to police. NBC10's Aaron Baskerville obtained exclusive video of the teen turning himself in.
