Family, Friends Remember Slain Cab Driver

LAS VEGAS -- Less than a week after the death of a Las Vegas taxi driver, a group of cab drivers are concerned and are paying closer attention to who is in their backseat.

Thirty-year-old Tesfaye Arze was shot and killed after an apparent robbery last Friday. A candlelight vigil was held in his honor Wednesday. Arze's family and fellow drivers honored his life as many put a spotlight on his profession.

"We have funny people, aggressive people," said driver Asiwome Fiati.

It's not his dream job, Fiati drives a taxi out of necessity. He shares the threats he sees everyday on streets while driving his cab.

"Any particular time for a cab driver can be dangerous. Whoever wants to commit a crime can choose anytime," he said.
