Police Searching for Gunman Who Fired at Miami-Dade Officers

Police are looking for the man they say opened fire on several unmarked Miami-Dade Police officers for an unknown reason.

Officers established a perimeter in Southwest Miami-Dade late Wednesday evening. In a tweet, Miami-Dade Police say members of the department’s Homicide Bureau’s Task Force were fired upon while “doing their job” near the 100th block of Southwest 173rd Terrace.

Police say the gunman approached three unmarked police vehicles and began firing for an unknown reason. Officers were able to fire back before the gunman fled the scene.

“This is a very dangerous and armed individual,” said MDPD Det. Argemis Colome. “This person was willing to shoot a police officer and a person capable of shooting a police officer is capable of shooting at anyone.”

Police say no officers were injured.

Any person with information on the shooting is
asked to call 305-471-TIPS.
