Man pleads guilty to shooting Kansas City taxi driver


KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A 20-year-old Kansas City man has admitted shooting a zTrip driver 26 times during a robbery. Derron Nevels pleaded guilty Friday in federal court to robbery and discharging a firearm during a violent crime. Prosecutors said the driver picked Nevels up on Dec. 4, 2018 and when they arrived at the destination, another person approached the vehicle while Nevels held a gun to the driver’s head and demanded cash. When the driver and Nevels fought over the gun, the second person hit the driver and Nevels fired several shots at close range. The driver survived. Two women have pleaded guilty to helping Nevels after the robbery.
