A man suffering from a gunshot wound was found in front of a terminal at LaGuardia Airport by stunned yellow taxi drivers. Eyewitness News is told the 26-year-old victim, shot in the chest, was discovered outside the Delta-United terminal just before 11:30 p.m. Monday.

He was apparently found near the central taxi hold area for yellow cabs, where several taxi drivers rushed to the man's aid.

One called 911, while the shooting victim asked for a driver's cell phone.

The victim was rushed to Elmhurst Hospital in critical condition.

Police believe the victim may have been shot inside a vehicle or off airport property and then dumped in front of the terminal.

Three armed men reportedly fled in a silver Pathfinder. No arrests were immediately made.
