Three police officers seriously injured after shootout

SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, Fla. (WSVN) -- Three Miami-Dade Police officers are injured following a shootout at an apartment complex. Miami-Dade Fire Rescue has transported two of the officers to Jackson Memorial Hospital.

Police say the shooter, possibly armed with an AK-47, is described by witnesses as a 28-year-old heavy-set male with a full beard and short hair, wearing a blue shirt. Authorities say he was driving a white Honda Civic with a black hood with the tag W10 4TD.

The vehicle took off northbound on the Turnpike in the southbound lanes just off Southwest 281st Street.

MDPD have set up a perimeter in the area between Southwest 108th Avenue and Southwest 105th Avenue on Old Cutler Drive, where witnesses last spotted the vehicle.

I used to live down close to there as well, it is very far south "miami", next step is basically Homestead, Florida.

The area was becoming decent, then Hurricane Andrew came and made a mess of it. Thats about when I left the area as well.

It is actually a fairly "white" (70+%)part of town, hispanics being less than 40% of the population, which in Miami, is pretty low :)

Still, it is considered a rather white trashy area.

Man with AK-47 assault rifle arrested after leaving Dearborn’s Hemlock Park
Press and Guide ^ | September 12, 2007 | Sean Delaney

Posted on 09/12/2007 9:06:57 PM PDT by sockmonkey

DEARBORN - Houssein Zorkot, a 26-year-old Dearborn resident, was arraigned Tuesday in 19th District Court on multiple felony charges, including carrying a dangerous weapon with unlawful intent — a five-year felony.

Zorkot, a third-year medical student at Wayne State University, was allegedly armed with an AK-47 assault rifle and dressed in black clothing with camouflage paint covering his face when he was arrested Saturday in Hemlock Park.

According to police, Zorkot was observed attempting to leave the park in a black SUV after officers had received reports of a man carrying a rifle in the area. He was placed under arrest and is scheduled to undergo a preliminary examination at 9 a.m. Sept. 21 in 19th District Court.

Why weird? The rifle has been around for 60 years and is the most widespread weapon in the world.

Just spoke to the MDPD station responsible for this section of the city. The desk officer confirms one male officer is deceased, and their understanding is that it was an AK47. The office apparently never even made it out of the car. The news report of this being related to domestic violence does not seem accurate. He stated this was part of a “sweep” according to his understanding, which went horribly wrong. Feds are involved.
