Two Hispanic men had lunch at a Honduran cafe in Miami Thursday afternoon and then robbed four fellow patrons at gunpoint before fleeing with their belongings, Miami police say.
According to detectives, a struggle between one of the victims and one of the suspects took place before the armed suspect became agitated and shot into the ground. In fear for their lives, the victims gave the suspects the items from inside their pockets.
The suspects took off with the stolen goods, and into a gray or silver four-door Chevy Impala and fled westbound on Northwest 31st Street.
The robbery took place shortly after 3:15 p.m. at the Tipico on The Renyo Restaurant, 3002 NW Seventh Ave.
