SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - An armed man who stabbed a woman to death has been hospitalized after a Miami-Dade Police officer said he was forced to fire.
Police said a man had stabbed and killed a woman.
Investigators said they received a call for help at around 11 p.m. on Thursday in the area of Southwest 200th Terrace and 123rd Avenue in Southwest Miami-Dade.
The suspect and victim drove into the neighborhood, but 7News was told they don’t live here.
“All of us that live here we know each other, so we know they were not from this area at all,” said Oscar Gutierrez, a nearby resident.
You can see in this surveillance video, as some sort of argument is playing out, all of the sudden the man pulls the woman out of the car through the driver’s side, eventually stabbing her.
“She’s obviously screaming. She was basically screaming, and then a car came to drive up to their driveway, and he sliced her right then and there, when he saw the car,” said Claudia, who lives nearby.
Video from a neighbor shows the altercation between the man and the deceased victim. He is seen allegedly beating on the woman before eventually stabbing her.
“Especially in my neighborhood, it’s quiet, never expect this in my neighborhood,” said Gutierrez.
The man is then seen trying to flee the scene, running the victim over with his car.
But the subject would not get far. He crashed into another car down the street.
When an officer confronted the armed man, police said, the subject charged at the officer, which is when they opened fire.
“The police officer that showed up on site said, ‘Stop, let me see your hands.’ The bad guy started running towards the police officer,” said Javan Wilson, a witness. “The officer started to shoot, and in the video you can see him even backing up as he’s shooting, because I guess he really wasn’t trying to go that route.”
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue pronounced the women dead at the scene.
The man was transported to Jackson South Medical Center in critical condition. The investigation continues.
