Shooting, robbery of cab driver generates $1,000 reward

TAMPA — A reward of up to $1,000 is being offered by Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay for any information leading to an arrest in the armed robbery of a taxi driver who was shot in the chest this week.

The taxi driver, Annuel Delicieux, was dropping off a passenger just before 3 a.m. Tuesday on W Chestnut Street when at least two men approached the yellow Crown Victoria, pointed a handgun at him and demanded money.

Delicieux, 42, tossed money out the window, but was shot in the chest as he tried to drive away, police said earlier this week. He then crashed into a patrol car. The officer, realizing Delicieux was injured, called for an ambulance that took Delicieux to St. Joseph's Hospital.

Delicieux remained in stable condition Thursday, police said.

Anyone with any information is asked to call Crime Stoppers anonymously toll-free at 1-800-873-8477.

    Police said Mishay Simpson shot Andrew Noll in 2014 after he entered her Davis Islands home. An investigation found the two had been having an affair. Now she is accused in a civil lawsuit of charging $80,000 to her ex-husband's Sam's Club card, which was linked to his parents' bank account. [Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office]
