Man in custody after armed carjacking and shooting

A man is in police custody after he carjacked a woman at gunpoint, then shot up a convenience store clerk’s car after an argument.

Miami police spokesman Christopher Bess said the man carjacked a woman at gunpoint at 5426 NW Third Ave. around 6:15 a.m. Wednesday. He took her Chevy Trailblazer and told her he would leave the car somewhere else for her later, Bess said.

Some time later, he ended up at the convenience store on the corner of Northwest Seventh Avenue and 69th Street. Bess said the suspect got into an argument with the clerk, which ended when he walked to the parking lot and shot up the clerk’s car.

Police, already on the lookout after the carjacking, showed up and detained him.

“Most likely, he’ll be arrested,” Bess said.
