JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A cab driver was found shot to death in his taxi early Saturday morning, police said.

The victim was in a Gator City Taxi parked in the 500 block of West 27th Street, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

Neighbors told investigators they heard what they thought were gunshots after midnight. It was raining and thundering so no one looked outside, according to JSO.

Around 7:44 a.m., 43-year-old Stuart Carson was found inside his cab by a citizen who notified police.

JSO is asking anyone with information regarding this shooting to call 904-630-0500 or email JSOCriveTips@JaxSheriff.org. To remain anonymous and receive a possible reward up to $3000, contact CrimeStoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS.
