Community responds to cabbie's death with action

KINGSBRIDGE - The Kingsbridge community is stepping up efforts to find the men who killed a livery cab driver this week and to make sure similar crimes don?t happen again.

Cesar Santos, 44, was shot in the abdomen when he tried to chase after two men who refused to pay their fare Sunday.

Police hope a $12,000 reward, posters and a photo of one of the suspects lead to tips.

City Councilman Fernando Cabrera is meeting with cab companies to discuss safety measures. He hopes to draw up legislation to install GPS systems or live feed cameras in livery cabs.
