FL: Two detectives ambushed, shot in unmarked car

Source: Miami Herald

“Police on Tuesday continued their search for six people involved in an ambush-style shooting of two undercover Miami-Dade police officers in their unmarked car. The detectives were working a gang detail in Brownsville when they were shot late Monday night by suspects who walked past them, opened fire and fled. The officers, who were taken to Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital in the back of a pickup by cops who were on the perimeter of the shooting scene, were in stable condition, one grazed by a bullet, the other shot in the leg.” [editor’s note: Cue the “war on police” rhetoric. What likely happened is that one gang’s members mistook a couple of guys sitting in a strange car in a neighborhood they weren’t from for members of a rival gang. Which, come to think of it, is true 😉 – TLK] (03/28/17)
