A cab driver was found fatally shot outside a New Rochelle catering venue Thursday morning.
New Rochelle police say officers driving by spotted the victim on the ground around 2:50 a.m. in the parking lot of Juliano's Caterers.
He was transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead from two gunshot wounds.
A co-worker identified the victim as Andres Valenzuela and says Valenzuela had just gotten off a six-hour shift at Express City Taxi when police found him lying on the ground in the parking lot at 700 Main St.
The co-worker, Raul Vilcapoma, says the victim was about to head home and had his personal car parked in the lot outside Juliano's Caterers.
Vilcapoma says the victim's employer has an office a half-mile away from the crime scene.
The company confirmed Valenzuela had worked part-time on the night shift for more than 10 years.
No arrests have been made. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 914-654-2300.
