STATESVILLE, NC (AP) — Police say a cab driver has been shot
to death in Statesville.

Investigators say the taxi flipped over early Tuesday in front
of the Statesville Police Department.

Authorities say the driver was 49-year-old Richard Anthony
Jones.

Statesville police have obtained a murder warrant for the cab’s
passenger, 29-year-old Thomas Garland Arndt of Statesville. Arndt
was injured in the wreck and is being treated at Carolinas Medical
Center in Charlotte.

Lewis Taxi officials say Jones had responded to a call from a
customer requesting a ride about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Assistant police chief Bill Halliburton says Jones was shot in
the back of the head, then lost control of his cab and crashed.
