A cab driver is in critical condition after he exchanged gunfire during an early-morning holdup attempt in his Birmingham driveway. . . .

The shooting happened shortly after 5:30 a.m. in the 2400 block of 10th Avenue South, just outside of the Southtown public housing community. Birmingham police spokesman Lt. Sean Edwards said Gideon had received a phone call just after 5 a.m. to go pick up a fare.

Gideon left his home and was opening the fence at the end of his driveway to pull out his cab when he was approached by a black male, Edwards said. The gunmen attempted to rob Gideon and then shot at him. Gideon returned fire but police don’t believe the robber was injured. He fled the scene. . . .

At least four shots were exchanged, they said. The cab was struck by bullets multiple times. . . .
