WILLIAMSPORT — A cab driver in Lycoming County drove himself to the hospital after being shot Thursday morning, according to police.
Williamsport police are still searching for the suspect they believe shot a cab driver on Elmira Street a little before 6 a.m.
Police checked up on some leads and searched a home in downtown Williamsport for suspects.
Williamsport police were out in full force looking for a man they believe shot a Billtown cab driver.
Police are calling the left side of a double home on Campbell Street a house of interest.
They searched for suspects in this home which is across town from where the shooting happened.
Loushar Robinson says she knows the family who lives in the home police raided. She says a woman lives there with her two adult sons.
“It would be a shocker to me, because she is just a stand-up person, does what she need to do and that’s what the kids do just work and maintain,” Robinson said.
Police have also been on Elmira Street where they believe the shooting happened.
One neighbor we spoke with says he thinks he saw the suspect run down this alley just minutes after he heard a loud noise.
“A man was talking to the cab driver. He was standing outside talking to the cab driver and then just like that the cab driver took off down the road and the man took off running down the alley,” Joel Henderson said.
Police say the cab driver drove himself to Williamsport Regional Medical Center. He was then taken to Geisinger Medical Center near Danville for serious injuries.
Neighbors who watched police search for suspects say the whole incident was surreal.
“I was shocked and a little frightened because it was like right next to my house,” Hailey Eisner said.
Police did take two people in for questioning, but have not released any additional details about the suspect. They say the suspect is armed and dangerous and targeted the cabbie.
Anyone with information is asked to call police.
