NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The New York State Federation of Taxi Drivers was offering a $5,000 reward Tuesday for an arrest in the slaying of a livery cab driver whose body was found on a Bronx street.

Maoudo Kane, 49, was found shot once in the head at 3412 Hunter Ave. in the Eastchester section of the Bronx, the federation said.

Police were called to the scene around 5:25 a.m. Tuesday and found the victim. He was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

The federation said a few witnesses heard shots, and they hoped someone saw something.

Kane’s body was dumped in the street, and the suspects fled in his cab, the federation said.

The federation was offering the reward for any information that leads to an arrest in the case.

“When they kill one of our drivers it opens up wounds that are hard to close. We don’t understand why anyone would want to kill a man for pennies, why take a human life,” spokesman Fernando Mateo said in a news release. “We need to find the killer/killers and make sure they get what’s coming to them. We will help the detectives of the 47th Precinct solve this crime.”
