An Uber driver accused of a Buckhead murder will remain behind bars. 

Robert Bivines was denied bond in his first court appearance Tuesday. Authorities say Bivines shot Ryan Thornton shortly after he dropped off a food delivery outside a Buckhead condo. 

Bivines' attorney – Jackie Patterson (pictured) -- claims it was self-defense.

The next scheduled hearing is March 6th.
