MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Miami police are searching for the gunman who shot a man near the Paramount Miami Worldcenter.

It happened Thursday night around 8:45 p.m.

Miami police said the man was shot multiple times about a block away from the condominium during a robbery.

“There was a physical altercation between two men and one man pulled out a gun and started shooting at the other man. While the victim was on the ground he started rummaging through his pocket looking for items,” said Miami Police Officer Kenia Fallat.

A witness said the man walked into the condo’s lobby after being wounded. Miami-Dade Fire Rescue transported him to the Ryder Trauma Center where he was listed in serious condition.

Fallat said it’s not known if the two men know each other. Detectives are going over surveillance video in effort to identify the gunman.

“Detectives are looking at surveillance images so we can determine what he looks like and what we need to do to find him. We are asking that anyone with information call us and give us a description of what this man looks like,” she said.

The shooting happened about eight blocks away from another shooting on Tuesday. In that incident, shots were fired by two different groups, four persons of interest were taken into custody. It’s not known what sparked the shooting, but no one was injured.

Police are still looking for two people in connection to Tuesday’s shooting.
