That’s a real Florida Man headline right there.
Two surveillance videos show the events surrounding a Wednesday night shootout between Miami-Dade police detectives and a gunman riding a scooter that injured a woman caught in the crossfire, police said.
First a 70-year-old man gets killed when a bunch of South Florida cops go all Heat on the Miramar Parkway.
Now another bystander gets hit during a shootout with a guy on a scooter.
Did they think a low-speed chase with a guy on a scooter would be too boring and a gunfight was a better option?
Meanwhile, near Northwest 54th Street and Northwest 22nd Avenue, detectives found a woman inside the red car suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. She was shot in the shoulder and taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center in stable condition.
“That vehicle was in the nearby vicinity during the shooting,” Zabaleta said.
It wasn’t immediately known if the woman was shot by detectives or the gunman.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating the police-involved shooting.
“FDLE’s role is to investigate potential criminality by the law enforcement officers,” the FDLE said in a statement. “We will determine the facts of the case and provide that information to the state attorney’s office. The state attorney’s office will determine whether or not charges will be filed.”
I guess the MDPD is facing a lot of backlash for possibly tagging innocent bystanders during shootouts.
Remember when all the anti-gunners said that concealed carry and stand your ground was going to turn Florida into a bloodbath, innocent people were going to get shot in the crossfire, and only the cops are professional enough to carry guns?
I think maybe Florida civilians need to red flag the guns away from the MDPD before any more bystanders get shot.
