Miami Herald Incident 10 days ago

An off-duty Miami-Dade police officer working security at a Liberty City Walmart was shot in the arm Wednesday afternoon, law enforcement sources told the Miami Herald.

The officer was rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital in a patrol car. News footage showed him walking in to the hospital.

Exactly who shot him was unclear. Footage shot from a television news helicopter showed what appeared to be a body covered by a yellow tarp between two cars in the parking lot.

As fellow officers, brass and police-union officials rushed to the hospital, Miami-Dade Police Director Juan Perez tweeted out: “We ask for support and prayers from the community. More info to come as we get it. Please be patient while we sort things out and acquire more information.”

This is a breaking news story and more information will be added as learned.
