Fla. Cab Driver Shoots Knife-Wielding Robber

posted on June 2, 2015

A Sebastian, Fla., cab driver wasn’t expecting anything out of the ordinary when he stopped to pick up two regular passengers just before 1 a.m. on Saturday. The men approached the vehicle as they had many times before, but this time, the 36-year-old pulled out a knife and demanded money from the 51-year-old driver. Upon seeing the knife, the driver pulled out his gun and shot the man in self-defense, prompting the would-be robber and the 34-year-old male relative who was accompanying him to flee.

Officers found both men by following a trail of blood to the suspect’s home. Despite efforts by police and paramedics, the suspected robber died on the way to the hospital. The incident is still under investigation, but police say the suspect was no stranger to the criminal justice system. “We’re familiar with him from previous calls,” Police Sgt. Steve Marcinik told the Vero Beach Press Journal.
