Teen Admits Shooting to Death Cabbie in Pennsylvania Because Driver Wouldn’t Follow Directions

Deborah Hastings, NY Daily News, May 24, 2014

A 16-year-old has been arrested for shooting a cabbie twice in the back of the head when the driver didn’t follow directions, Pennsylvania authorities said.

Aazis Richardson admitted as much to a horde of reporters as officers in Scranton led him down a hallway at police department headquarters. “That’s what I do to people that don’t listen,” the handcuffed suspect said, according to The Times-Tribune.

The teen was charged with murder and robbery on Friday and is being held at the Lackawanna County Prison without bail.


Richardson was picked up by the driver at about 3 a.m. Friday, police said. When the driver didn’t follow his directions, the teen fired two shots to the back of Darbenzio’s head.


Richardson also admitted he was a member of the Boyton Boys gang in Newark, N.J., and is a suspect in a triple homicide there, police said. Authorities are investigating that claim.
