From Morning Report, 6:38 am on 20 November 2017

Wellington taxi drivers have spoken of their horror and surprise at Saturday night's attack when one of their colleagues was shot. A taxi driver fled for his life after being shot in the shoulder in the suburb of Miramar in what appears to have been an unprovoked attack. Taxi driver Johnny Fordham told RNZ's Charlie Dreaver while it's unusual to hear of someone having a gun pulled on them, violence against drivers isn't uncommon, particuarly among those who can't defend themselves.
