a man shot and killed his girlfriend Saturday in a car and video called her estranged husband before driving to the Florida City police station to turn himself in — all while her body was still in the car, police said.

Alexander Roque was booked into the jail and faces charges of second-degree murder, according to online jail records.

Roque allegedly shot his girlfriend Saturday night inside a white Hyundai Tucson before driving to the police station along West Palm Drive.

He reportedly surrendered to officers and told them the body was inside the vehicle along with the gun he used to shoot her, according to an arrest report released Monday.

Officers say they found the victim in the front passenger seat of the vehicle along with a revolver on the driver’s side floorboard.

During an initial investigation, police contacted a witness, identified as the victim’s estranged husband.

The estranged man told detectives Roque sent him a photo of the victim’s body inside the vehicle, covered in blood. He claims he also received a phone call from Roque, in which he admitted to fatally shooting her, the arrest report said.

The victim’s estranged husband says Roque later video-called him via WhatsApp, showing him her lifeless body, which he recorded and later gave to investigators, the report continued.

Police say Roque also confessed over the phone and sent a similar photo to his cousin, who then called 911.

Cameras captured Roque outside the police department late Saturday night.

Neighbors of Roque expressed shock at the alleged murder, saying they did not know Roque’s girlfriend.

Police have not identified the victim. Miami-Dade police are said to be leading the investigation.
