LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Yellow Cab is upping its reward to help find the person who shot a cab driver in Louisville.

Abdirahman Mohamed was shot last month near the intersection of 32nd Street and Hale Avenue in the Parkland neighborhood.

Yellow Cab has now increased its reward to $12,000 for information about the shooter. 

Mohamed moved to the U.S. in 2007 from Somalia with his four kids to escape the country's civil war. A spokesperson says Mohamed is still in the hospital, lost the use of his legs and is in for a long recovery. 

"To have somebody shot and left for dead is unacceptable -- and someone knows who did it," said Larry Bisig, Yellow Cab spokesperson. "We want that person to come forward and give us information -- and they can do that anonymously." 

The company also donated $5,000 to a Go Fund Me page for Mohamed's medical expenses. 

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 574-LMPD.
