Police are investigating after the driver and passenger of a Mercedes-Benz were shot Thursday afternoon in southwest Miami-Dade.

Miami-Dade police were called to a Tom Thumb gas station at 18400 SW 177th Ave., where two men were suffering from gunshot wounds.

The driver of the Mercedes-Benz was shot in the leg and the passenger was shot in the abdomen, according to authorities. 

Officials say the incident took place about three miles away on a street between a field and a dragon fruit farm in the Redlands.

The men allegedly met with another man who opened fire at them. A witness then drove the wounded passenger to the gas station, while the other victim drove there in his Mercedes-Benz.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue airlifted the victim who was shot in the abdomen to Jackson South Medical Center.
