Killeen police are searching for a cab passenger balked at paying the fare and instead pulled a gun on the driver early Wednesday morning.

Police said the Express Cab driver picked up the male passenger on the south side of town.

When the driver asked the man for his cab fare at North 2nd St. and E. Dean Ave. just before 1:45 a.m. he pointed a gun at her head, got out of the cab and ran in an unknown direction.

The driver told police that the passenger was a slim, black man wearing a red shirt and blue jeans or shorts.

No one was injured.
