    A man has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of a cab driver in Northeast.

    Police arrested 20-year-old Rashad Slye of Southeast Sunday morning and accused him of shooting 40-year-old Domingo Ezirike of Prince George's County hours earlier.

    Police discovered Ezirike suffering from a gunshot wound shortly before 4 a.m. Sunday in the 4300 block of  Ponds Street, Northeast. The unconscious and unresponsive man was pronounced dead at the Chief Medical Examiner's office.

    Ezirike worked for Silver Cab in Landover and a dispatcher confirmed to News4 that he was driving cab number 426. Requests to speak to his manager were not immediately answered.
