3 in custody after shootout in Miami Burger King parking lot, police say

 

 Three people are in custody after a shootout Tuesday afternoon in the parking lot of a Burger King in Miami.

Miami-Dade police said Daniel Rodriguez and Enrique Santana walked into the fast-food restaurant at 11595 Southwest 40th Street and began acting disorderly and being disrespectful to the staff.

The Miami-Dade Police Department said as Daniel Rodriguez and Santana walked out of Burger King, they made disrespectful comments to Jorge Rodriguez, who was standing outside.

The duo got into their vehicle and pulled out a gun, and Jorge Rodriguez responded by getting a gun from his vehicle, police said.

The Police Department said as Daniel Rodriguez and Santana circled the parking lot, shots were fired.

Police said Jorge Rodriguez was taken to Kendall Regional Medical Center to be treated for a small laceration on his back. He was treated and released.

Miami-Dade police Detective Argemis Colome said all three men are in custody.

 

It’s unclear what led to the dispute.

Man identified in connection with armed robbery at Miami gas station

A 30-year-old man was identified Tuesday in connection with an armed robbery early this month at a gas station in Miami.

The robbery was reported about 9:15 p.m. Aug. 2 at the Valero gas station at 2200 SW 27th Ave.

Miami police said Darshiel Pratt approached the counter, pointed a handgun at the clerk and demanded all of the money from inside the cash register.

Police said the clerk, who was in fear for her life, complied with Pratt’s demands and handed him all of the money in the register.

Pratt grabbed the cash and fled south on Southwest 27th Avenue, authorities said.

Authorities said the victim identified Pratt in a six-photo lineup.

Pratt faces an armed robbery charge, once he’s caught.

Miami police originally said in a news release that Pratt was arrested. A spokesperson later called to correct that report, saying investigators identified the suspect; they did not arrest him.

Thief points gun at clerk’s head before taking off with 18-pack of beer

A thief pointed a handgun at a gas station clerk last week before taking off with an 18-pack of beer, authorities said.

The robbery was reported just after 4:30 a.m. Wednesday at a 7-Eleven store at 4451 Davie Blvd.

Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies said two men entered the store as the clerk stepped out to throw out some trash.

Deputies said surveillance video shows one man walking directly to the coolers and appearing to struggle to keep an item from sliding down the front of his pants as he walked. 

Authorities said he then grabbed an 18-pack of Modelo beer and walked to the front door, where he was confronted by the clerk.

The clerk told the man that the store was closed, and the thief pushed him, pulled a gun from his waistband and pointed it at the clerk’s head, authorities said.

Deputies said the clerk hid behind the door and the thief ran off.

Authorities said a second man stood at the counter during the robbery, but left before deputies arrived.

Detectives said they would like to speak with that man.

Anyone with information about the identities of either man is asked to call Detective Armando Enrique at 954-321-4200.
