Man with gunshot wound driven to Miramar Walmart

Police: Shooting did not happen at store

MIRAMAR, Fla. – Police are investigating after a man was driven to a Miramar Walmart with a gunshot wound.

Sky 10 was above the Walmart at South University Drive and Pembroke Road shortly after 4 p.m. Monday as detectives focused on a red car that was parked in front of the store. Blood-stained clothes or rags could be seen on the floor next to the front passenger-side door.

Miramar police spokeswoman Tania Rues said it's unclear where the shooting occurred, but said it did not happen at the Walmart or in the Walmart's parking lot.

Rues said the victim, who suffered from one gunshot wound, was driven to the store by a friend and was later taken by authorities to Memorial Regional Hospital.

Witnesses told Local 10 News that he ran inside the store asking for help.

"It's crazy because they're jeopardizing everybody's safety," said customer, Jessica Alvardo. "Because you never know if the guys were behind him, and he comes and drives where there's a lot of people."

Rues said it's unclear where the shooting happened and said the victim is not cooperating with detectives.

The Walmart remained open to customers.

The victim is listed in stable condition.
