Nikita Grebelskiy, 23, died from his injuries.
There's no word yet if charges against the suspected shooter will be upgraded.
Michael Magnan, 19, is currently charged with attempted murder and attempted robbery.
Police say Magnan was armed with a gun when he walked up to a livery cab after it stopped in Flatlands early Saturday morning.

The gun went off, hitting Grebelskiy in the head.
