Gyimah was killed on Aug. 13 when he dropped off five passengers early Saturday morning near Beach 54th Street and Arverne Boulevard in Far Rockaway.

The passengers allegedly ran off without paying, and when Gyimah got out of his taxi and chased them, the group turned on him and began punching and kicking him.

One member of the group punched Gyimah in the face, sending him collapsing to the ground where he suffered a fatal head injury.

The other four suspects are described as two girls between the ages of 13 and 15, a girl around 16 years old, and another man around 20 years old.
