A 39-year-old man is expected in court on Thursday for arraignment on multiple charges in the shooting death of a Detroit cab driver.
William M. Heard has been charged with open murder, assault, armed robbery and carjacking in the Jan. 3 shooting that killed 48-year-old cab driver Tyrone Hitchcock. A 46-year-old female passenger whose name has not been released was also shot but survived.
Police say the gunman stole the cab after the shooting and abandoned the vehicle near Mack and St. Antoine.
Hitchcock worked for Metropolitan Cab and is survived by a daughter, brother, two sisters and three grandchildren.
