1 robber fires at victims, police say

HIALEAH, Fla. – Hialeah police are searching for three men who held up an AT&T store at gunpoint last month in Hialeah.

The attempted robbery was reported just before noon Oct. 28 at the AT&T store at 1448 W. 49th St.

Surveillance video shows one of the men pointing a handgun at three people.

Hialeah police Sgt. Carl Zogby said the robbers ordered the victims to drop their phones and walk toward the back of the business.

Zogby said a witness who was outside the store called 911, and the thieves ran away when they heard police sirens approaching.

No property was stolen from the victims or the store.

Zogby said the armed robber fired several shots at the victims before leaving in a getaway vehicle that was parked near the back of the business.

Detectives believe that the men have been involved in other similar crimes.

Anyone with information about their identities is asked to call Hialeah police at 305-687-2525 or Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
