2 in custody after suspects bail out during police chase in North Miami

NORTH MIAMI, FLA. (WSVN) - Police have taken two people into custody amid a large police presence in North Miami.

North Miami, Sunny Isles and Miami-Dade Police could be seen responding to the incident at Northeast 16th Avenue and 139th Street, just after 4 p.m., Thursday.

Officers shut down the road west of 16th Avenue between Northwest 139th and 142nd streets. Nearby Natural Bridge Elementary School was also placed on lockdown.

“I just saw the helicopters going in circles, and then the police all over the place blocking up all of the streets,” said a witness. “I just went to the school, and they said the school is on lockdown.”

That lockdown has since been lifted and the road reopened.

Police have cleared the scene though one subject remains at large, according to police.

Video from above shows a stolen red-orange car with the doors open, with officers standing nearby. Police said the vehicle was stolen during a robbery.

7Skyforce also captured video of a damaged Dodge Charger that may belong to law enforcement and possibly collided with the stolen vehicle.

According to witnesses, subjects bailed out of the vehicle, sending officers on a search.

A Miami-Dade Police helicopter could be seen circling the area.

It is recommended that motorists avoid the area.
