A 26-year-old Kingston man is considering himself lucky this afternoon after a firearm holder shot up the robot' taxi in which he was travelling last night.
Krishna Beach, a computer technician, said the taxi had earlier pulled up at a gas station on Spanish Town Road and ordered $1,000 worth of gas.
However, he said no sooner than the pump attendant had placed $1,000 worth of gas in the car, the driver changed his mind, saying he only wanted $500 worth of gas.
Beach said the pump attendant demanded the full amount.
When his demand was not met, the pump attendant rushed inside a building at the gas station and the taxi driver drove off.
Beach said that’s when a firearm holder came outside of the building and fired one shot into the rear windscreen of the taxi which struck him in his back.
The Hunt's Bay Police could not immediately offer a comment on the matter.
