On Monday night, Hialeah police were called to an incident at Jerry and Joe's Pizzeria at 4799 Palm Avenue in Hialeah.

Around 5 p.m., a male was in the parking lot when two men approached his vehicle. There was an altercation in which the victim was shot once in the head. Police say the victim tried to flee in his car, crossing four lanes of traffic and crashing into the back of a funeral home.

Police confirm that the victim, who was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital, is alert and working with investigators.

"At this point, we're looking two black males. We believe that one was armed. We do not have a vehicle description at this time," says Hialeah Police Det. Eddie Rodriguez.
