A 63-year-old man told police that he was robbed early Saturday of about $150 in cash from his taxicab in Little Rock.

Officers were initially called shortly before 1 a.m. to the 3100 block of South Gaines Street in reference to shots fired, according to a report from the city’s Police Department.

At the intersection of Gaines Street and Roosevelt Road, the victim told police that a robber, while brandishing a firearm, demanded that he give him all of his money.

After a single gunshot was fired, the robber and an accomplice then took money from the 63-year-old's taxicab, the victim said.

The inside of the taxi appeared to be “disheveled,” the report noted.

A suspect was named in the report, though he did not appear on an online inmate roster for the Pulaski County jail as of Monday afternoon.
