Shots fired, 2 vehicles stolen during a burglary at a car dealership in Opa-locka

OPA-LOCKA, Florida. – Surveillance video shows three people breaking into a car dealership in Opa-locka before shooting a security guard.

The incident happened early Thursday morning at the CarYou Miami dealership, located at 2695 NW 141st St.

Employees told Local 10 News that the crooks used a rock to break through the front door.

The mask-wearing trio didn’t hide their intentions, however – they wanted car keys.

The group went through two more doors once inside – one of them with a gun drawn.

Finally, they found what they were looking for.

The trio returned to the field and started a 2010 Infiniti G37 and a 2017 Hyundai Sonata.

The two cars were seen lined up in front of the closed gate.

At one point the security guard spotted them and shots were fired near the rear of the building.

The trio ran back, got behind the wheel of their stolen rides, and drove through the gate.

The police showed up and the security guard was taken to hospital.

“It’s bad, you know. People are not working and they want to take things from others,” he said.
