NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - A man had to be taken to the hospital after an argument escalated into a shooting following a car crash in the parking lot of a Walgreens in Northwest Miami-Dade.

According to Miami-Dade Police, there was a crash involving two cars at the drug store along the 9400 block Northwest Seventh Avenue at around 5:30 p.m., Thursday.

“All I know is that car fled the scene. They left,” witness Richard Leggiere said. “I heard a gunshot.”

Police said the passenger of one of the vehicles and the driver of the other vehicle got into an argument.

Then, the passenger fired at least three shots, striking the driver, who then walked across the street to a 7-Eleven to seek help.

“He tried to drive away and ended up backing into the bushes, stumble out the car and walked over across the street, and that’s where he ended up in the parking lot of the 7-Eleven,” Leggiere said.

Cellphone video captured Miami-Dade Fire Rescue paramedics tending to the victim’s injuries before transporting him to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center in critical condition.

Investigators said the car containing the passenger that shot the driver sped away from the scene carrying three to four people inside.

Officers blocked off some roadways as they combed the scene for evidence.

If you have any information on this shooting, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a $1,000 reward.
