CVS customer shoots would-be armed robber, police say

An investigator with the state attorney’s office opened fire inside a Perrine CVS after another man walked into the store and pulled out a gun in an attempt to rob it, police said.

The incident happened at about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday night at the CVS, 11503 Quail Roost Drive, in south Miami-Dade. An incident report described the man who fired a weapon as an investigator with the state attorney’s office, police spokeswoman Robin Pinkard said.

Police say the man who was shot left. Shortly after, a man with a gunshot wound showed up at Jackson Memorial South, according to police.

Detectives are trying to determine whether that man is the same man who was shot at CVS.

The state attorney’s office did not immediately respond to a call for comment.

Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS (8477).,+Miami,+FL+33157/@25.5917848,-80.3825922,17z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x88d9c39a6239e0fb:0x1d29b1bb6dbb78fb!8m2!3d25.5933717!4d-80.3792663
