Police officers responded to a call about 5:15 Sunday, meeting with the cab driver in the 600 block of Bonham Street. He told officers he picked up two young men in northeast Paris and drove them to a convenience store to buy cigarettes.
The driver said he then took them to an apartment complex elsewhere in town. As the men were exiting the taxi, the driver said, they asked how much the fare was, and one of the men displayed a pistol and demanded all his money.
The driver said he told them he didn’t have any money and rapidly accelerated from the scene, Garrett said.
The case is under investigation, Garrett said.
