A cab driver in New Orleans, LA said a young man got into his cab and held an object, which appeared to be a gun, to his neck as he demanded money and the keys to the cab.

The driver initially complied, but at some point the robber and driver got into an altercation, the driver drew his own gun, and shot the would be robber in the face.

The would be robber was actually using a flashlight disguised as a gun during the robbery.

The suspect is being treated, under guard, at an area hospital and will be charged with armed robbery after he is released.
