Breaking: Police Officers Attacked in Terrifying Ambush

In a terrifying series of events, two plain clothes officers in Miami, Florida were ambushed as they sat in their unmarked police vehicle in the late evening hours.

The officers were on duty late Monday night when they were approached by six young men who opened fire and hit both officers. Miami-Dade Police Union President John Rivera told local media that “They were outnumbered and outgunned. God was watching over them tonight.” The detectives were working the gang detail and were watching a “drug hole” and had just called it in when the attack occurred.

One of the officers was grazed by a bullet and the other was shot in the leg. They were rushed to the hospital by fellow police officers who brought them to Jackson Memorial Hospital in the back of a pickup truck.

Miami-Dade Police Director Juan Perez and Mayor Carlos Gimenez asked for help from the community to bring the criminals to justice. Perez said, “These individuals not only shot at these officers and struck our police officers. These individuals are causing havoc in our community, causing chaos in people’s lives, putting people below the ground. So let’s work together to find a resolution to what occurred tonight. Point us in the right direction.” Gimenez echoed those statements, “If they’re brazen enough to to shoot at and try to kill police officers, they’ll shoot at others. They don’t deserve to belong on the streets in our community.”
