Cab driver shot, killed on South Side

Police are searching for two men who shot and killed a cab driver on the Far South Side.

The driver picked up the men Thursday night near 85th and Parnell.

Police say the suspects robbed the driver and then shot him twice, once in the back and another time in the head.

Edwin Obazuaye, 48, of Harvey died from those injuries last night at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn.

Police say the killers got away with nothing more than the driver’s cell phone.

It’s not clear whether Obazuaye gave police any information about the suspects before he died.
