Man shot in Kmart parking lot, gunman at large

Posted: Updated:

NORTHEAST MIAMI-DADE, Fla. (WSVN) -- Police are searching for a person who opened fire on a driver in the parking lot of a South Florida store.

Investigators said the man was shot at the Kmart near 107th Street and Biscayne Boulevard, just after midnight Thursday. According to police, a group of friends were sitting in a vehicle when the gunman walked up to the driver and shot him in the head.

Authorities said the victim tried to drive away but crashed his car into a tree across the street. His passengers took him door-to-door throughout the neighborhood, desperately looking for someone to call for help.

Rescue crews airlifted the victim to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where his condition has not been released.

Resident Scott Norris said he is concerned about the safety in the neighborhood. "I'm moving out of the neighborhood because it's getting really bad," said Norris. "The drugs are getting really bad in this neighborhood. There's a lot of crime, a lot of breaking into cars. The children go to school here, on this corner here. I feel that this community is unsafe."

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 reward.
