MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Miami Springs police are searching for three people in connection to a robbery attempt and a shooting.

A pickup truck with a Papa John’s sign on top had bullet holes in it at 100 South Royal Poinciana Boulevard.

On Sunday, just before 9 p.m., a Papa John’s pizza delivery person pulled over on the side of the road in the 100 block of South Royal Poinciana Blvd. When the driver got out of his truck to check on an order, police say a male with a gun ran up and pointed it at the driver.

The two struggled and the gun went off.

The driver was able to break loose, get back in the truck, and take off.

He pulled over in the 4800 block of N.W. 36 Street after noticing blood coming from their arm and called 911.

Miami Springs police said prior to the call being dispatched, one of their officers spotted three males running in the area of the 100 block of South Royal Poinciana Blvd. Two of the males fled into Hialeah and the third continued running in Miami Springs.

A perimeter was set-up, a search was conducted, but no suspects were taken into custody.
