Authorities are looking for two suspects after a police sergeant fired shots into a car she said sped toward her in the parking lot of a Miami mall.

The incident occurred outside the Home Depot at 7899 W. Flagler Street.

The Miami-Dade Police sergeant was patrolling the mall parking lot when a store employee notified her of a shoplifting suspect who was pushing a shopping cart with merchandise.

When the sergeant approached the suspect, he abandoned the shopping cart and fled to a car that was waiting outside.

The vehicle, which was driven by a female, then began to advance toward the sergeant and the sergeant fired at least one shot. She was also able to avoid being struck by the vehicle and was not injured.

The vehicle then fled south at a high rate of speed.

Detectives are seeking the assistance of the community with any information to include the subjects' identities/whereabouts.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to contact CrimeStoppers at (305)-471-TIPS (8477).
