The police arrested a 19-year-old woman for shooting a taxi driver in the face last Thursday. Enois Malbranche, a 62-year-old driver, is still in critical condition; Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said Malbranche was "shot in one eye...The bullet exits the other eye." Malbranche had picked up three women at Flatbush Avenue and Fulton Street, but at Lafayette and Franklin Avenue, he stopped when they wouldn't pay the $9.80 cab fare. That's when April Pierce allegedly shot him; it's also suspected the women were trying to rob him. A taxi drivers union and a taxi cab technology company have offered a $15,000 reward for information leading to arrest and conviction.
