Horry County has identified David John Bennett, 54, of Conway, as the man that was shot in his taxi cab early Monday morning.
Tony Hendrick, deputy coroner for the county, said Bennett died of a single gunshot wound to the chest while behind the wheel of his cab on Dillon Street.
A woman in that area previously told The Sun News that she saw a man in a black hoodie standing outside her home this morning. The man said he was waiting for a taxi, Jalisa Matthews said.
Matthews said she later discovered Bennett after he had been shot but shortly before he died.
Conway Police are investigating the incident, Hendrick said.
