Hail of bul­lets hit Win­nipeg cab­bie

Cape Breton Post - - CANADA/WORLD -

WIN­NIPEG — A Win­nipeg taxi driver is re­cov­er­ing from a shoul­der wound after some­one cut off his cab at an in­ter­sec­tion and started shoot­ing at his car. Po­lice say the cab­bie had cus­tomers with him when he was con­fronted early Sun­day morn­ing by another ve­hi­cle in a north­east neigh­bour­hood. Some­one got out of the sec­ond auto and started fir­ing in the di­rec­tion of the cab, strik­ing it a num­ber of times be­fore the at­tack­ers sped away. The taxi driver’s cus­tomers also fled but none of them was in­jured. Gur­mail Man­gat, the pres­i­dent of Unic­ity Taxi, says three shots went through the wind­shield but the driver wasn’t se­ri­ously in­jured. Po­lice are still look­ing for sus­pects.
