Gunman who killed cop, shot 3 more, sought

first_imgCUTLER BAY, Fla. – A gunman opened fire on four Miami-Dade County police officers during a traffic stop Thursday, killing one and injuring the other three before fleeing and triggering a manhunt across South Florida. The officers were conducting burglary surveillance when they stopped the man because he was driving a car erratically, police spokeswoman Linda O’Brien said. The man opened fire with a high-powered weapon without warning and fled. It was not immediately clear whether the officers returned fire. TV footage showed several officers briefly surrounding a house, guns drawn, before moving on. Others swept through a grassy area on foot and picked through a garbage truck. Several schools were locked down during the search in Cutler Bay, in suburban Miami. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
