DORAL, FLA. (WSVN) - One person has been placed in custody after a police-involved shooting in Doral.

On Monday, Miami-Dade Police were following a stolen vehicle and lost sight of it, which led to them issuing a “Be on the look out” notice.

Doral Police had spotted the vehicle near Northwest 25th Street and 82nd Avenue.

Then, at around 5:30 p.m., the police special response team and other officers would arrive to an office parking lot located in the area of 8000 NW 25th Street in Doral, as the suspect, who ran to the parking lot, got into the building.

Despite being told to leave by employees, he got on top of the building.

“He was located shortly thereafter on the rooftop,” said Doral Police spokesperson Rey Valdes.

“He was on the roof, walking back and forth, back and forth,” said Teresa Valdespino.

“He was very agitated, and we made contact with him,” said Valdes.

“Someone overheard that when he first got on the roof that he kind of taunted the cops,” said Valdespino, “like saying, ‘Come and get me.'”

The suspect was said to have had something in his hand, which led Doral Police to open fire, striking the suspect in the leg.

Doral Police said the suspect suffered an injury that was not life-threatening but said the shooting was for good reason.

“[The suspect was] running toward our officers with this object in his hand. He was told to drop it repeatedly, to which he refused. Our officers discharged their weapons,” said Valdes.

“We heard like seven or eight shots,” said Valdespino.

The suspect was treated on the roof of the parking lot before being taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital.

Nobody else was injured or hurt in the confrontation.

Valdespino told 7News that everyone had been evacuated from the building.

Police later identified the suspect as 38-year-old Michael Anthony Prouty. He is now facing several charges including fleeing and eluding, assault on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest and grand theft.

The Florida Department of Law enforcement is now investigating the officer-involved shooting.
