MIAMI- A Miami Beach man has been shot – all for a dollar. Now the police want to find the person who did it.
The theft took place early morning last Thursday along the 1000 block of 8th Street.
Police say the 25-year-old victim and a friend were sitting outside his apartment building when the gunman demanded money and then shot him in the chest.
The thief got away with $1 and a wallet belonging to the friend.
The victim, who came from Argentina, is currently in an artificial coma.
“He is intubated, sedated in a coma, fighting for his life. We thought for the past 24 hours that he was going to die,” said Fernando Gallardo, the victim’s father. “Please have empathy for us, we need justice”
Miami Beach PD has released a sketch of the man they are looking for.
