  • Ethiopian man killed his wife in Texas

    After months of threats from her husband, a Richardson mother of two was killed Sunday in a case of domestic violence. Hanan Seid, 26, was shot repeatedly outside the apartment complex she moved to in order to escape her abusive husband, according to KDFW-TV (Fox 4).

    Seid's family and friends say 36-year-old Ahmed Abdela had threatened his wife with a gun and a knife repeatedly in the six months since the couple separated.

    Seid was shot Sunday afternoon as she and a friend were returning to her apartment. Police say Abdela was waiting in the parking lot with a gun.

    As the friend returned to his car, he heard shots, he said, and saw Abdela standing over his estranged wife with a gun. Abdela then drove away, police said, firing at Seid's friend. The friend was unharmed.

    Sgt. Kevin Perlich with the Richardson Police Department said Abdela called authorities from a Starbucks about an hour after the shooting and "calmly told them he killed his wife and wanted to turn himself in."

  • San Jose Taxi Driver Honored with International Award for Hard Work

    SAN JOSE, Calif. (KGO) -- A Bay Area man just learned he's winning an international award for his work as a taxi driver.

    Enders Abdu left Ethiopia to find the "American Dream."

    "I came to this country in 1998 and after two years I started driving a taxi," he said.

    His day starts out like any other driver, getting his cab ready for the road. But that's about where the similarities end.

    While many drivers wait for a call from dispatch, Abdu already knows his schedule. "At 6:55 I'm going to pick up my first kid and I have three kids," he said.

    And they're the same kids every day. They are kids with special needs who go to school far from home. "The kids have to feel comfortable, so you have to have the type of driver that makes that child feel comfortable," Yellow Checker Cab operations Dave Logan said.

    San Jose's Yellow Checker Cab Company recommended Abdu to the schools where they have a contract to transport kids.
