Two young girls under the age of 15 have been charged with carjacking and murdering an Uber Eats Employee in D.C., according to The Blaze.
The two girls, ages 15 and 13, allegedly attack Mohammas Anwar with a taser.
The girls have reached a plea deal with prosecutors and they will not receive any time in prison.
When the girls tased their driver it caused him to flip his vehicle. Anwar was ejected from the vehicle during the incident.
Anwar was a father of three that came to the U.S in hopes of building “a better life for himself” and his family.

More than $1 million has been raised on a GoFundMe page for Anwar.
Anwar’s family described him as “a beloved husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and friend who always provided a smile when you needed one.”
“He was simply at work yesterday evening, providing for his family, when his life was tragically taken in an appalling act of violence,” the family added.
“Words can not describe how our family is feeling currently. Devastation, confusion, shock, anger, heartache, and anguish are just a few that come to mind.”
More from The Blaze:
The incident took place Tuesday, March 23, just outside the ballpark where the Washington Nationals play. Video of the incident shows the girls struggling with Anwar inside his Honda Accord before the car accelerated with him hanging outside the driver’s side door.
Moments later it rounded a corner, crashing into parked cars and flipping on its side. Anwar was flung from the vehicle and sustained multiple broken bones and a head injury. The two girls can be seen attempting to escape from the vehicle and flee the scene before being stopped by National Guardsmen who happened to be nearby.
