MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Authorities are investigating a police-involved shooting in northeast Miami-Dade.
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue responded to reports of a shooting Friday afternoon.
Chopper4 was over the scene near NE 2nd Court and 143rd Street around 5 p.m. Someone could be seen being put into a fire rescue truck.
A man could be seen sitting on the curb in handcuffs near a dark-colored vehicle with what appears to be bullet holes through the passenger side window. About five officers could be seen standing by the man, at one point.
According to CBS4’s Peter D’Oench, this all started after a suspect tried to hit an officer with his car. He was reportedly forced to fire and the suspect was wounded and the officer was injured.
A young man in the neighborhood said he witnessed the whole thing.
“I was right here and the next thing I see the car, somebody, he run over the police officer,” he said. “I seen the car drifting and ran over the police. And that is when the police came before the man tried to shoot the police and police shot him before he could escape.”
Schools in the area were put on lock down.
Both the police officer and suspect were taken to Aventura Hospital.
“They’re in good condition,” said Officer Brigette Pace. “FDLE is taking care of the investigation from here.”
A second suspect was taken into custody.
