PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Police say a dispute between two cab drivers over a fare in northeast Philadelphia ended with one of them shot.
A police spokeswoman said the two argued at about 1:15 p.m. Saturday outside the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority Frankford Transportation Center over who would take the next customer. Police said a 52-year-old driver took the female fare and pointed a large knife at the other 43-year-old driver before driving off, but returned a half-hour later and punched him.READ MORE: Current And Former KDKA Talent Honored At 2021 Mid-Atlantic EMMY Awards
The younger driver said he knew the other man had a knife so he fired his gun, hitting the older man twice in the torso and grazing him on the head. The older man was taken to Aria-Jefferson Health’s Torresdale campus. Police originally reported an arrest but a spokeswoman said Sunday that no arrests were made.READ MORE: 'I Hope He Gets Home Safely:' Pittsburghers Spot Escaped Steller's Sea Eagle Kodiak Around The City
