The victim told deputies he was hired to transport three individuals from a residence on Chamber Court to the Taco Bell located at 11140 Spring Hill Drive.

When the taxi driver pulled up to the house he was met by the three teenagers. Once inside the vehicle, the victim drove a short distance before one of the juveniles asked the driver to stop so one of them could retrieve their cell phone. All three juveniles exited the taxi. One then proceeded to display a handgun and demand money from the taxi driver.
