7-Eleven Robbed at Gunpoint in Northeast Miami-Dade

Police are investigating an armed robbery at a gas station in northeast Miami-Dade Thursday morning.

The robbery happened around 5 a.m. at the 7-Eleven at 1550 Ives Dairy Road when two armed men entered the store and demanded cash, police said.

The suspects took an undisclosed amount of money and fled the scene. No one was injured.

Patrons said they were fed up with the crime in the area.

"It’s ridiculous, It’s ridiculous, somebody could have got hurt, somebody could have gotten killed,” Tony Bradham said. "I’m not happy, right now with you telling me this it makes me very very angry."

“You have the school back here, you have parents with kids, when I first heard about it, I was bringing my daughter to school and I thought 'oh my god,'” Alex DeLarsa said.

The incident is the third robbery of a 7-Eleven in the past month, following one in Boynton Beach and another in Coral Gables.

Police are looking for the suspects, who they described as men between 25 and 35 years old, between 5-foot-9 and 6-foot-0.

Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
