Authorities have not yet revealed what could have led to the incident
Miami Beach Police are investigating the scene of a police involved shooting that sent one officer to the hospital and left one suspect dead Saturday night.
In a Tweet, police said the shooting happened at 10th Street and Ocean Drive.
The officer was stabbed several times, but is in stable condition following surgery, according to police.
The suspect, who was shot at by officers, was transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital in critical condition and later died, according to police.
Authorities have not released any information on what led to the incident.
I am very saddened the officer was injured.
Will the “reverends” find cause to come running to this one?
21 foot rule. Draw be ready and hope you still dont get cut.
21 feet is only enough for one who is ready and practiced...less than a second for a fast attacker.
But I can break thre bottles throwed in the air!
Why is my first thought Arkancide whenever I hear of a downed officer?
Well, that makes all the difference...I’m approaching 68 and 30 feet might be enough for me - I had to demonstrate to my wife that even I can get to her from 30 feet away before she has her weapon out and ready...nothing like direct knowledge to increase one’s sense of situational awareness.
Sorry, I was goofing around. In the movie Litttle Big Man the lead character could shoot out the eyes of a gnat at fifty feet...but he soon found out how much harder it was to shoot a human being at any range.
I’m always glad to be reminded of the dangers of a knife- wielder at any range. I live near the Canadian border and on a day like today, snowy, wind blowing, the difficulty of drawing one’s firearm under heavy clothing is hard to exaggerate.
No need for an apology - I wasn’t at odds with you - just sharing my own personal experiences/thoughts.
Some folks have better reflexes and easier access...us older folks need to have greater situational awareness and “paranoia”...
Prayers for the officer. Then I'd like to know why the perp was able to do this the officer, and which state let the perp loose.
