Police-Involved Shooting


(Miami-Dade County, FL) -- 

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating a shooting involving two Miami-Dade Police Department (MDPD) officers.

According to investigators, at approximately 11 Monday morning officers from the MDPD conducted a traffic stop at NW 27 Ave and the 17900 Block. During the stop, officers were forced to discharge their firearms at the occupants in the vehicle.

The vehicle fled the scene and officers gave chase. The vehicle was abandoned at NW 177 Street and NW 7 Ave. Two subjects were subsequently taken into custody. Detectives later learned two arrived at area hospitals with non-life threatening injuries.

This is still a very active scene and investigators are still trying to determine the exact order of events.  The investigation continues.

UPDATE#1: After further investigation, it was determined that Intercostal District uniform officers were tracking a stolen 2016 black Mercedes SUV in the area of NW 180 Street and 27th Avenue, when they observed the vehicle in the parking lot of 17951 NW 27 Avenue. When officers exited their vehicle to make contact with the occupants, the driver drove in reverse into a marked police vehicle.  The driver then placed the vehicle into drive and proceeded to drive forward almost running an officer over and ultimately striking another police vehicle. Two of the three officer on scene discharged their firearms at the driver. The vehicle then fled from the scene.

Uniformed officers then followed the vehicle to 17710 NW 15 Court, in Miami (Scott Park).  The driver who has been identified as Tyrese Johnson fled on foot from the vehicle and was taken into custody.

The two other occupants in the vehicle identified as Keimari Dugue, B/M/17, DOB:  12/29/1998, was the front passenger in the stolen vehicle and sustained a gunshot wound to the head and was transported to Aventura Hospital, where he remains in stable condition.  Jasmine Sairras, B/F/15, DOB:  11/05/2000, was an additional passenger in the stolen vehicle and sustained a gunshot wound to the hand and was transported to Memorial Regional’s Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, where she remains in stable condition.
