Crandall “Jack” Reed, 51, had pulled his Yellow Cab taxi into the parking lot of the Boy Scouts of America building on Edgewood Ave in Jacksonville, FL around 3:30am on Friday November 16, 2007. As he sat in his cab an unknown car pulled in front of him attempting to block in Reed. Knowing something wasn’t right, Reed drove his cab around the building. As he attempted to escape, someone jumped from the unknown car and began shooting. Reed was able to drive to a convenience store a few blocks away before collapsing on the steering wheel and being discovered by police responding to a “shots fired” call in the area. Reed, who proudly served 20 years with the US Navy before retiring and was a veteran of Desert Storm, died from gunshot wounds a short time later at a local hospital .
