A ride-share driver was murdered in broad daylight in Fort Worth on Friday, leaving a family in mourning, according to a report by Fox 4 KDFW.

“The 31-year-old father started work Friday morning. He was found dead hours later at a Fort Worth apartment complex. His vehicle was later found abandoned.

“The Lyft driver’s family says he never came home Friday. They called Fort Worth police and Lake Worth police and hospitals.

“After finally locating the victim’s vehicle at the impound lot, the family then learned the 31-year-old father had been shot and killed.

“Monday afternoon, crime scene tape outside an East Fort Worth apartment complex marks the spot where a Lyft driver was murdered in broad daylight Friday.

“That driver has been identified as 31-year-old Shawali Sherali, a husband and father of two with a third child on the way.

“… Witnesses told police Sherali had been in a vehicle that crashed into a fence, but someone else then jumped in the driver’s seat and drove off. Sherali was left with a fatal gunshot wound in the torso.”

Despite the recent tragedy, Fort Worth’s public safety efforts appear to be working better than Dallas’, with Cowtown’s city center regularly logging much less criminal activity than Downtown Dallas, as previously reported by The Dallas Express. The former is patrolled by a dedicated police unit and private security guards.
