Two arrests after cabbie killed breaking up a fight

(Sep 11, 2014, (GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga))--A taxi driver was shot to death in a condominium complex in Lilburn Sunday morning while trying to break up a fight between a customer and her boyfriend. It happened at around 6:15 a.m. in the Springs Condominiums at 1300 Branch Drive near South Norcross Tucker Road.

Monday morning, investigators identified the victim as 53-year-old Aidarous Abdella of Lilburn. Abdella has been driving a cab for eight years according to a friend. "He's a nice guy, a family man, he supported his family," said Khalid Yonis.

Yonis said he has known Abdella for 15 years. Yonis talked to 11Alive News in front of his friends house where he was consoling family members. He said Abdella supported a sister who is handicapped and a son who recently moved to his home from Ethiopia.

"He's 22 years old, he came from Ethiopia like a year ago," Yonis said. "He's a full-time student so we don't have anyone supporting his family."  Read more from »
