NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) – A police investigation is underway after an armed carjacking came to an end at a Northwest Miami-Dade gas station.

According to Miami-Dade Police, an armed carjacking occurred at around 5 a.m. outside of a Miami man’s home in the area of Northwest 69th Street and North Miami Avenue, Monday.

Police said a man was sitting in his vehicle when two armed men ordered him out of it and took off with his Nissan Altima, which was low on fuel.

An hour later, a Miami-Dade Police officer spotted the vehicle at a Sunoco gas station in the area of Northwest 119th Street and 24th Avenue.

Surveillance footage captured one of the subjects pulling up and quickly gassing up the stolen silver Nissan, but police spotted the car by the time he got back inside the car.

The video shows an officer attempting to stop the driver behind the wheel. The cruiser could be seen backing up the stolen car into a corner next to a U-Haul truck. Once backed into the corner, the driver of the Nissan bumps the left-front fender of the police cruiser in an attempt to flee.

Three men inside of the vehicle then could be seen bailing out.

7SkyForce HD flew over the scene where police cruisers could be seen blocking the silver Nissan, which was eventually towed out of the gas station.

Authorities have taken one of the three men into custody, and the other two subjects remain at large.

No one was injured.

The victim’s wife said her family wants to remain anonymous because of the two armed men that remain at large.

If you have any information on this armed carjacking, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a $1,000 reward.
