A cab driver was shot and killed on Detroit’s west side overnight and police have the suspected gunman in custody.

The incident unfolded around 11 p.m. Wednesday when officers on routine patrol came across a cab on Ardmore and Midland streets, in a neighborhood near Schaefer and Fenkell Avenue.

As the patrol car approached the scene, a man who was standing near the cab started to run. Officers found the man hiding in an abandoned house, where they also found the apparent murder weapon. The man was taken into custody without further incident.

Further investigation of the cab revealed the driver had been fatally shot. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police have not yet revealed a motive for the shooting.

An investigation is ongoing.
