In January 2015, two Aventura officers their weapons into a car to stop Jimmy Daniel, suspected of stealing video games, from running over an officer in the parking lot of a Target. No officers or visitors at the shopping center – which includes a Target, Whole Foods Market and Best Buy – were hurt in the shooting. Police say the use of force was justified, because a car may be used as a weapon.
Daniel got away but was picked up in North Lauderdale.
