Maxi taxi driver killed in robbery *

A 57-year-old maxi-taxi driver was shot dead on Wednesday night during a robbery.

Brandon Dupigny, a father of four, was plying his maxi-taxi when around 9 p.m. a passenger signalled that he wanted to disembark at the corner of St John's Road and the Eastern Main Road, St Augustine.

As the passenger was getting out of the maxi, he turned and grabbed a wad of cash from Dupigny's hand.

There was a struggle and the man withdrew a gun from his waist and fired a single shot at Dupigny, hitting him in the head.
