Seconds after the robbery, victim Juan Medoza hopped in his car and chased after the suspects.

Realizing what was happening, one of the suspects jumped out of his car and began firing.

Detective Rodriguez reminds everyone not to chase after a suspect.

He suggests, "Just get as best of a description as you can while you're in that situation, comply with the demands and call 911 immediately." 

Anyone with information about the suspects is asked to call Miami-Dade CrimeStoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
