Livery Driver Shot Dead in Baycehester section of the Bronx

From by Kathy Carvaja:

An investigation is underway into the shooting of a livery cab driver in the Baychester section of The Bronx.

Ndiaye Amadau, 46, was found dead inside his car on Wilson Avenue and Boston Road just before 1 a.m. on Monday. He was shot in the chest. He later died at Jacobi Medical Center.

Police say the vehicle collided with two parked cars before the shooting. Cops say a witness reported seeing a man run from the livery cab after the collision.

Investigators are looking into the possibillity that a passenger killed the driver during a robbery.

Fox 5 Reporter Katherine Creag says the 47-year-old driver had been living in the United States for twenty years. He left behind a wife and child in Senegal. He would regularly send them money.

It was unclear during the early hours of the investigation if the driver was licensed, but the President of the New York State Federation of Taxi Drivers says he was in fact working for a livery service as a licensed driver.

No arrests have been made.
