Authorities say a North Carolina cab driver has shot and killed a teen in what the driver says was a robbery attempt in southwest Charlotte.
Multiple media outlets reported that 17-year-old Renaldo Smith died shortly after the shooting around 10 p.m. Sunday.
Investigators say the cab driver told them the teen pulled out a gun shortly after he picked him up after being called to an apartment complex.
Authorities say the driver was able to get his own gun and shoot the teen. The driver was not injured and called 911.
Police have not released the cab driver's name and continue to investigate the shooting.
