LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Metro police are searching for two suspects involved in robbing and shooting a valley cab driver.

Police said the incident happened during the month of September. The two suspects got into a cab and directed the driver to take them to the area of Bonanza and Eastern, according to police.

Police said once they arrived, one suspect pointed a gun at the cab driver and demanded money. The suspect proceeded to shoot the cab driver once before both suspects fled on foot with the cab driver's money, police said. The cab driver suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

The first suspect is described as a heavyset Hispanic male, approximately 25 to 35 years old, with a goatee and mustache.

The second suspect is described as a Hispanic male, skinny build, approximately 18 to 20 years old.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department robbery section at 702-828-3591, or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
