Off-duty officer shoots man during confrontation
MIAMI (AP) — Authorities say a Florida police officer shot and wounded a man during an off-duty confrontation.
A Miami-Dade police news release says the shooting occurred early Friday morning in a neighborhood north of Miami.
Police say the city of Miami officer had just dropped off a 21-year-old woman at the home when she got into an argument with a 29-year-old man inside the house. The man then walked over to the officer’s personal vehicle and a fight ensued.
Police say the officer discharged his firearm, striking the other man, and then called 911. The man was taken to a Miami trauma center, where he was listed in critical but stable condition.
Miami-Dade police weren’t immediately naming the officer, and no charges were reported.
A telephone message seeking comment from the city of Miami police wasn’t immediately returned.
