MIAMI (AP) _ Police in Miami say a gunman has been wounded after taking a store manager hostage during a botched robbery attempt.

Police and witnesses say the man went into a Walgreen's drugstore early Saturday, made employees lie on the floor and forced the manager into the parking lot at gunpoint.

The police and witnesses say the gunman was confronted by officers outside the store but he fled in the manager's car before being caught. The manager was not seriously injured.

It isn't clear yet who wounded the attacker but police say he was taken to a hospital for treatment.
