MIAMI (WSVN) - An officer-involved shooting in Miami’s Wynwood neighborhood sent one person to the hospital, police said.
Cameras captured a Jeep surrounded by crime scene tape near Northwest Second Avenue and 27th Street, early Sunday morning. The vehicle appears to be at the center of the incident.
City of Miami Police units responded to a call of a reported assault, just after 3 a.m.
“Officers responded to the area, attempted to apprehend the subject involved in the assault, at which point in time one of our officers discharged his firearm, grazing the subject in his right shoulder,” said Miami Police Officer Kiara Delva.
The subject was taken into custody and transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening.
7News cameras captured the subject, seen in shackles and wearing a light gray hoodie and ripped jeans, shortly after he arrived by ambulance at the hospital. The bullet graze was visible through his hoodie as he was led inside with a police officer by his side.
Back in Wynwood, crime scene technicians were seen collecting evidence after the sun rose on the last day of Miami Art Week.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement has since taken over the investigation. An FDLE spokesperson said they hope to wrap up witness interviews by the end of the week.
