Rickshaw Driver Wounded In Drive-By Shooting

A rickshaw taxi driver is recovering after police say he was shot during a drive-by shooting and robbery in Greenville early Saturday morning.

Damien Lovett was shot in his thigh, according to an owner of Peddlin' Pirates. The 33-year-old Greenville man was shot with a .45 caliber gun, with the bullet exiting his leg.

It happened around 1:50 a.m. Saturday on South Rotary Avenue. A parked BMW was also hit by the gunfire.

The owner says they first tried to rob his driver and didn't get any money. He said a few minutes later after the driver had pedaled home, the same vehicle came by and fired multiple shots.

Lovett is at home recovering, while police have not made any arrests.
