The driver of the vehicle drove him to the emergency room at Broward Health North, where Hester got out of the car and fled on foot. Bennett was in critical condition, but succumbed to his injuries on July 7.
The motive of the shooting remains unclear.
Hester faces one count of first degree murder.
