Miami-Dade Police said officers observed the teens in a white pick-up truck at a high rate of speed, just after they allegedly stole some beer at a gas station near S.W. 240th Street and 112th Avenue.
The truck looked familiar.
“These officers were able to notice that the vehicle matched the description of a stolen police vehicle, unmarked police vehicle, a pick up truck, that had been stolen some days earlier,” said Miami-Dade Police Spokesman Daniel Ferrin. “This vehicle was stolen from a police officer’s residence.”
As the teens left the gas station, they sideswiped another car and took off. That prompted a chase that eventually ended near 108th Avenue and 256th Street, where a confrontation with officers occurred.READ MORE: Ex-Wife Of Publix Shooter Timothy Wall Frustrated With PBSO Sheriff

No officers were hurt during the incident.
Three males between the ages of 17 and 19 were shot. Two females, 15 and 17, were taken into custody.
