The two teens face attempted murder and related charges. They’re being charged as adults.
Officers were called to the 9000 block of Ballard Lane in Clinton for a shooting around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday morning. They found the cab driver suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. The driver is in critical but stable condition.
In the carjacking, the suspects called a cab at Woodlawn Boulevard and Torington Place in Largo around 4:25 a.m.
