    Police are looking for a pair of suspects who robbed 84-year-old Luisa Diaz at gunpoint outside her Miami home Tuesday.

    The robbery happened in the 400 block of Southwest 23rd Road as the woman was coming home, Miami Police said.

    Two men jumped the gate of her home and one man held a gun on the woman while the other snatched her necklace, police said.

    “They brought out a gun and said, 'If you don’t shut up, we’re gonna shoot you,'” Diaz said through a neighbor who translated. “I am afraid now, just to live alone,” Diaz said.

    Diaz suffered minor injuries during the theft.

    Police are investigating the robbery.
