Widow calls murdered Lyft driver 'love of my life'

- The widow of a Lyft driver killed while working early Wednesday morning said her husband was generous, loved life and gave up his career to take career of their young daughter.

Camila Wright Zolfaghari held a news conference outside of the couple’s Mabelton home Friday, two days after her husband’s murder.

Wright Zolfaghari called her husband, Shahriar, the love of her life. She told reporters he gave up his real estate development career and began driving for Uber and Lyft after their daughter was born one year ago.

"He loved us more than anything. We are broken," the 37-year-old Assistant State Attorney General told reporters as her voice cracked.

Atlanta Police said someone shot Zolfaghari twice while he was in his car at Rankin and Boulevard, after he dropped off a fare in the area.

Police have talked to that rider and said he had nothing to do with the murder.

Zolfaghari's credit cards and identification were still intact, so police said the crime does not appear to be a robbery.
