Police are searching for a suspect who shot a livery cab driver three times in a robbery attempt in the Bronx early Sunday morning.

Authorities say the gunman got into the victim's cab around 5:10 a.m. on the corner of White Plains Road and Lafayette Avenue in the Soundview section. Once inside, the suspect displayed a firearm and demanded money.  

The suspect then started shooting.

The victim was identified by his brother as Raphael Martinez.  Fox 5 News reported that the driver only had $8 on him at the time of the attack.

The victim is listed in stable condition at a nearby hospital. It's unclear where the bullets hit him.

Police have released photos of the suspect. He is described as a black man in his 20s with a goatee. He was last seen wearing a tan bubble jacket and a dark hoodie with "Abercrombie" written on the front.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
