A man who was at the center of an armed kidnapping FBI case was shot and killed late Thursday by police after he fired at several officers with an assault rifle, police said.
Rapid gunfire erupted near Northwest 72nd Avenue and Seventh Street — just blocks away from Miami International Airport. Officials said several police departments were working with the FBI in an ongoing armed kidnapping case when the shooting happened.
The identity of the gunman was not immediately provided by police or FBI officials. Police did not say how many shots were fired and whether anyone else was hurt.
Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez announced the news at a late-night budget hearing downtown. He said a shooter with an “AK-47” was dead after an “exchange of gunfire.”
A body remained at the scene about 11 p.m. EST and no officers were injured according to Miami-Dade Detective Alvaro Zabaleta.
Update: “The suspect of this investigation fled the scene. And he was armed," FBI spokesman Brian Waterman told reporters early Friday. "He [the suspect] was involved in a hate crime investigation.”
