PARKCHESTER, Bronx (WABC) -- A livery driver was shot outside a dispatch office in the Parkchester section of the Bronx on Thursday.

The 60-year-old victim jogged up to the VIT Luxury Service on White Plains Road just after 2 a.m. after being shot nearby.

He was shot in the chest and grazed in the face.

Dramatic surveillance video shows the victim frantically waved his hands to get the dispatcher's attention to open the doors.

EMS took the driver to Jacobi Hospital in critical condition.

The victim was not driving a car registered with the VIT fleet at the time of the shooting.

He was however driving a Toyota Camry registered with the TLC as an Uber car, but the driver had not been active on the ride-sharing app for 10 days.

The circumstances surrounding the shooting are still unclear.

So far, no arrests have been made.
