“A Miami-Dade Police officer who was injured in a shootout that left one suspect dead was out of surgery and in stable condition Wednesday as authorities continued to investigate the incident.
The incident began when Miami-Dade detectives working with special agents with FBI were conducting a drug investigation at a home in the 6000 block of Southwest 22nd Street Tuesday night.
Police say the officers and agents were ambushed by a gunman who jumped out of a car and opened fire. The officers and suspect exchanged gunfire and when the smoke cleared, the detective and suspect were both shot multiple times, police said.
The detective, who hasn’t been identified, was airlifted to the Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital with gunshot wounds to his abdomen. The suspect, who also wasn’t identified, died shortly after the shootout, police said.”
