Cab Driver Gets Jail Time After Shooting Boss

by Jim Melwert

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The cabbie who shot his boss in the chest last October in Glenside is headed to prison.

34-year-old Ozzie Clark will spend 8-20 years in state prison.

The sentence comes after, back in June, Clark pleaded guilty but mentally ill to attempted murder and robbery.

Investigators say Clark drove a cab for Montco Transportation Services in Glenside. On October 16th, he shot his supervisor in the chest after an argument over $1,101.52 that Clark said he was owed.

After he shot the man in the chest, he demanded the manager write him a check. While he waited for the check, he wouldn’t let anyone call for help.

Clark was caught later that day in Philadelphia.

The shooting victim survived, and testified at Clark’s sentencing.
