WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — A man has been arrested in the death of a North Carolina taxi driver.

Winston-Salem police told local media outlets that 49-year-old Richard Dorman Webb was found dead in his cab shortly before 4 a.m. Thursday.

The door to the taxi was open and police say Webb’s death is suspicious.

Police have arrested 25-year-old Calvin Moore Jr. of Winston-Salem and charged him with murder.

Capt. Steve Tollie said Moore had been a customer of Webb. Investigators have not released a possible motive. Tollie said an autopsy was planned Friday on Webb’s body. Police say they seized a gun when Moore was arrested.

Moore is being held in the Forsyth County jail in Winston-Salem. It was not known if Moore has an attorney.
