A cab driver was shot to death in an apparent armed robbery Friday night in west suburban Maywood.

Police were called about 8:44 p.m. to the 1600 block of South 5th Avenue, where they found 34-year-old Seneca Richardson slumped over the steering wheel of a taxi, according to Officer Persia Allen, a Maywood police spokesman. He had been shot in the back.
