CHICAGO (AP) - Authorities say a 51-year-old Chicago cab driver has died after he was shot in the chest during a robbery in the North Lawndale neighborhood.

A spokeswoman with the Chicago Police Department says the driver - identified by the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office as Chinedu Madu of Chicago - was shot Thursday night and died later at a local hospital.

A dispatcher for Chicago Carriage Cab tells the Chicago Sun-Times (https://bit.ly/1wB0mLp ) that Madu had been with the South Side-based company for some time. She says the company has more than 100 drivers.

The dispatcher says detectives have been speaking with the cab company but couldn’t share further details.
