LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Somali cab driver who was shot earlier this year in Louisville is continuing to recover.

Community activist -- and family spokesperson -- Christopher 2X says Abdirahman Mohamed has been moved from Frazier Rehab to a more long-term rehab facility.

The Yellow Cab driver was shot in June when he responded to a call for a ride near the intersection of 32nd Street and Hale Avenue. He is still paralyzed but making small improvements. 

"He's breathing on his own again," 2X said. "And he has effective speech patterns again, both in Somali and in English. And he's very well pleased with that because of the help of these therapists here." 

There is a $12,000 reward from Yellow Cab for any information on the shooter.

If you have any information, you can call the LMPD crime tipline at 574-LMPD. Callers can remain anonymous.
