By Ashley Coleman First Coast News JACKSONVILLE, FL -- Investigators have no suspects in the murder of a cab driver on the Westside Friday morning. Police found 51-year-old Crandall Jack Reed fatally wounded in his cab on South Edgewood Avenue. He died later at the hospital. JSO Sergeant Rick Hike says dispatch got a call a little before 3:30 this morning about shots fired on South Edgewood Avenue. When police arrived, they found the cab driver in his taxi. Crews transported him to the hospital where he died. Hike says there were two scenes a couple of blocks apart. He told First Coast News investigators believe the cab driver was shot in a parking lot behind the North Florida Council Boy Scouts of America building. He says Reed was able to drive himself to a convenience store, Quick Trip Food Mart, near South Edgewood Avenue and Roselyn Street. That's where police found him. David Melton worked with Reed at Yellow Cab for the past few years. He says cab drivers are like family and everyone is mourning this loss. "Drivers take care of each other a lot out there so it's just something that's very sad." If you saw or heard anything, police want to hear from you.
