Somali Man found shot to death inside Yellow Cab.

A man found shot to death Thursday morning in the driver’s seat of a Yellow Cab in the parking lot of a thrift store in Windcrest, has been identified.

A witness reported the shooting just before 7 a.m. at the large parking lot for the Texas Thrift store in the 7500 block of Interstate 35, officials said.

When police arrived, they found the victim, Aadam Xirsi, 50, dead. The driver’s side front window had apparently been shattered by a bullet, and the victim had one leg dangling out of the open door.

Investigators said they believe Xirsi operated the taxi.

Windcrest Police Chief Al Ballew said officers are reviewing security camera footage in the area and the taxi driver’s log in order to get a better idea of what led to the shooting.

“We’re still working this,” he said. “It’s fresh. It’s still under investigation.”

No weapon was found inside the vehicle, and Ballew said it’s unclear what kind of firearm was used in the killing.

Police are working to identify any suspects involved in the slaying.
