DAILYKENN.com --Tommy Cross, 55, was shot six times and robbed of his cell phone and wallet, reports say.
Cross was operating as a Lyft driver when he became suspicious of his three passengers. After pulling into a 7-Eleven convenience store for safety, he was shot six time and robbed. Reports say the thieves made off with his wallet and cell phone.
The incidents occurred in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and were reported October 15, 2020.

Fifty-five-year-old Tommy Cross is suffering from gunshot wounds down his arm and side. His shoulder is shattered, and the force of the gunfire fractured his jaw, blowing out his teeth.
“My tongue is gone,” Tommy said.
Tommy said it all started when he picked up three passengers earlier this month in Del City.
Tommy quickly became suspicious when the trio in the back seat kept changing their destination, so he stopped at a nearby 7-Eleven.
“He was trying to get them out of the car and that’s when the gentleman jumped out,” Sheryl Cross, Tommy’s wife, said.
According to police, a male suspect fired a gun while Tommy scrambled to drive away.
He eventually crashed into a truck and a wall while the left side of his body continued to bleed out.
The suspects made their getaway with Tommy’s phone and wallet.
Tommy has been through six surgeries and doctors aren’t positive if he will ever have full motion of his arm again.
