Teen Killed in Police Shooting

Posted June 20th, 2014 @ 11:14am


A police showdown with an accused criminal turn deadly in northwest Miami Dade.

The bloody scene ended what started out as a two-police agency investigation between the county and the City of Coral Gables police who were investigating a string of car break-ins and robberies.

On the trail of a 17-year old subject, the case led them to the parking lot of Flea Market USA off 79th Street.

Miami Dade Detective Alvaro Zabaleta says the suspect did not cooperate- ramming his car into a Coral Gables police cruiser.

After a showdown, guns drawn, police opened fire striking the teen, who later died from his wounds.

While the shooting appears to be justified, an investigation continues.
