The Miami-Dade Police Department, Homicide Bureau, is investigating a death that occurred at the above location. According to investigators, officers responded to the location regarding a domestic dispute. Once officers arrived, contact was made with the subject, who became combative. After pushing one of the officers down causing a head injury, the subject fled on foot. Other officers gave pursuit, deployed an electronic control device, and the subject was taken into custody. During the pursuit, a second officer sustained a laceration to his head. Miami-Dade Fire Rescue responded and transported the officers and subject to a nearby hospital to receive medical attention. The officers were subsequently released from the hospital. The subject was transported to the Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital, where he later expired.
