Miami-Dade homicide detectives are investigating a police-involved shooting that happened along SW 162nd Avenue and 77th Street, Wednesday morning.

Investigators say officers were dispatched to the scene where a suspicious man was seen looking into the window of a car.

The man was later identified as 44-year-old Juan Luis Rodriguez.

When officers arrived they questioned the man, who they say gave them false information.
