There is always more... Can't wait to hear the entire story.
*Update* Supposedly they got into a disagreement when he dropped the PAX off. Then they called him saying they left something in the car and he went back, and the guy was standing there with the gun. He tried to throw the car in Reverse when he saw it and go backwards but multiple shots were fired.

HOLLYWOOD HILLS, LOS ANGELES (KABC) --
A hired driver trying to flee from an attempted robber ended up flipping over his car and being shot by the suspect in the Hollywood Hills area early Thursday morning.

Authorities said the shooting occurred around 2:30 a.m. in the 3400 block of North Troy Drive. The driver was dropping someone off in the neighborhood when that person was confronted by an armed suspect who demanded money, police said.

The woman said she did not have any and the suspect convinced her to call the driver back. When the driver returned, he was confronted by the armed suspect. The driver tried to flee by putting his car in reverse, but ended up flipping the vehicle over and the suspect then shot him, police said.

The driver was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment in stable condition.

Police first said the driver was with Uber, but then clarified the driver was not part of the ride-share company.

The anti-Uber media changing it's story.

Wow....just Wow....

Well, that cat with the gun woulda' been wearing my car for this morning's breakfast. I thought there was a dispute between the driver (not Uber) and the passenger, so I was like Why the H go back there? But no, it was full on armed robbery with a separate person. Perp, meet my BUMPER!

ADD: Seemingly more accurate and updated story. http://mynewsla.com/crime/2016/07/0...e-overturns-robbery-fails-in-hollywood-hills/

Also, this could have happened to anyone of us...careful out there ya'all!
