1 shot, 3 on the run after stealing pricey cars from driveway of Miami Beach home

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – Three people are still on the run after jumping a front gate of a home in Miami Beach and stealing luxury cars.

According to officers, it all started around 10:30 p.m. Saturday when four men got into the driveway the gated home on Pine Tree Drive near 44th Street.

Once on the other side, each of the men got into a car belonging to the homeowner.

The high-end cars included a Range Rover, Rolls Royce, Porsche, and a Lamborghini.

A security guard that worked for the homeowner noticed what was happening and opened fire, striking a subject who was inside a Range Rover.

A second subject got out of a parked Rolls Royce and fled with the other subjects in a white Porsche 911 (Florida plate QQI-K17) and a green Lamborghini Urus (Florida plate QGL-I53).

The injured subject inside the car refused to cooperate with officers and barricaded himself inside the vehicle for several hours, which called for a hostage negotiation team to respond to the scene. Eventually the suspect surrendered and he was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital where he is listed in critical but stable condition.

Police said he has yet to be formally charged.

Throughout Sunday morning, detectives combed the property for clues. At one point they appeared to dust the Rolls Royce for fingerprints.

The Range Rover was later taken away on a tow truck.

The other two cars and the men who took them have not been located.

Anyone with information is asked to call Miami Beach Police or Miami Dade Crimestoppers at (305) 471-8477.
