Police released stills from surveillance video inside the livery cab which shows the thief pulling out a handgun. The incident took place at around 5:10 a.m. on January 13. The driver, 54-year-old Raphael Martinez, picked up his fare at the corner of White Plains Road and Lafayette Avenue. Inside the car the suspect displayed a revolver and demanded cash. The robber then opened fire hitting the driver three times.
