MIAMI SPRINGS, FLA. (WSVN) - Police have arrested a man in connection to an armed robbery and shooting in Miami Beach that sent one person to the hospital.

Miami Beach Police officers swarmed the Extended Stay America Suites in Miami Springs, Thursday afternoon.

A picture shared with 7News showed the shirtless suspect in handcuffs.

He was later identified as 25-year-old Ranier Figueroa.

Back on July 21, investigators said, Figueroa walked up to two men who were sitting on the steps of their apartment building near Eighth Street and Michigan Avenue.

Police said the suspect demanded money, and after the victims gave him their wallets, he opened fire, striking the 25-year-old victim in the chest and putting him in a coma.

Police said the injured victim remains in the hospital and is currently listed in stable condition.

The Extended Stay America Suites in Miami Springs is the same location where, police said, officers confronted a suspected robber connected to the fatal shooting of Miami-Dade Police Officer Cesar Echaverry on Tuesday. Police said the suspect was killed but have not provided further details.

Figueroa faces charges of attempted felony murder and armed robbery. He is being held without bond.
