It was May 30th, 2011. Memorial Day. At 4 a.m. a crowd remained along famed Collins Avenue on Miami Beach, the last day of an Urban Beach weekend that brought hundreds of thousands of visitors to town. A small car drove South on Collins, in the wrong lane. It swerved, side-swiping some other vehicles along the way. As the car approached 14th street, police officers opened fire.
An attorney for one of four people injured in a police involved shooting on Miami Beach two years ago plans to call on the U.S. Department of Justice to conduct an independent investigation.
A man who was shot during the shootout on South Beach during the Memorial Day weekend spoke out about the incident Friday.
