MIAMI (AP) -- Authorities say four people are dead after a police-involved shooting in Miami-Dade County.
Miami-Dade Police spokesman Alvaro Zabaleta says the robbery bureau was involved in an investigation Thursday evening in the southwestern section of the county when they learned of the possibility of criminal activity.
Several suspects were identified and due to their criminal history, Zabaleta says the department's special response team was called in.
According to Zabaleta, the suspects arrived in the area northwest of the Redlands community wearing ski masks and carrying firearms. A confrontation occurred as the men got out of their vehicles. Shots were fired and four suspected were killed.
Zabaleta says none of the police officers were injured.
No other details were immediately available.
