Niagara Falls cab driver robbed at gunpoint

Niagara Falls police are investigating the Sunday night robbery of a cab driver. 

The 25-year-old cabbie told officers they were flagged down at 21st Street and Ferry Avenue at 9:45 p.m. Sunday by three men. 

The cabbie drove the suspects north down 22nd Street, with all three men sitting in the back seat of the cab. 

The cabbie said one of the suspects put a gun to the back of their neck and told them to pull over near 22nd Street and Pierce Avenue. The suspects demanded cash, which the cabbie gave them. 

All three men then ran east down Pierce Avenue toward 18th Street.

No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
