MIAMI SHORES, Fla. (AP) — A suspected robber who briefly held a drugstore manager hostage early Saturday was shot and wounded as he fled alone in the man's car, authorities said.

The Walgreens manager was forced into his own car but was able to break free and run before officers opened fire, Miami-Dade police said in a statement.

The man led police on a chase before crashing and fleeing the vehicle on foot, police said. Officers located him about three hours later.
