Tampa Police detectives are actively working to identify and arrest two suspects who fatally injured a Yellow Cab driver. The two suspects called for a cab at around 7:45 p.m. on December 8 to take them to another location. While the suspects were en-route to their destination, they shot the cab driver and fled the scene near the intersection of Eskimo and 18th Street. The suspects’ final destination is still unclear at this time.

Officers are actively canvassing the neighborhood, processing the victim’s vehicle and interviewing multiple witnesses to determine the suspects’ identities. Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $3,000 for anonymous tips from the public that lead to an arrest.
