A suburban Philadelphia cabdriver is facing charges this weekend after authorities say he shot his boss during a dispute over money on Friday.

Ozzie Lou Clark, 45, was in Abington Township on Saturday facing charges. Police say Clark felt he was owed money by the cab company he worked for, the Montco Suburban Taxi Company on Mount Carmel Avenue near Limekiln Pike in North Hills, and got into a dispute with company supervisor Alex Kagan over the debt Friday afternoon.

During that dispute, police said, Clark pulled a gun and shot Kagan, and then wouldn't allow anyone to call an ambulance until someone cut him a check.

Kagan, who was shot in his side, was recovering at Abington Memorial Hospital on Saturday. Officials said the father of three was in stable condition.

As for Clark, police say he fled to Philadelphia but didn't make it far before police tracked him down. Officers in Southwest Philadelphia stopped Clark's blue Dodge Avenger at 72nd Street and Woodland Avenue later Friday afternoon.

Clark was arrested without further incident, and police said they found a .40-caliber handgun in his car. A woman who was also in the car at the time was taken into custody, but police have not said whether she was also charged in connection with the shooting.
