MIAMI – The man at the center of a police-involved shooting in northwest Miami-Dade County has been booked into jail after being released from the hospital.

Wadson Sagaille, 24, was shot after a Miami-Dade police officer opened fire during a traffic stop.

Sagaille, who was being sought on an outstanding homicide warrant, pulled out a gun, police said.

The officer who shot him wasn't injured.

Sagaille is being held in a medical ward of the Miami-Dade County main jail as he recovers from his injuries. His bond court appearance has been delayed, but he is expected to be held without bond.

Sagaille made national news seven years ago after a confrontation that the then-teenager had with an assistant principal at Miami Edison Senior High School. Students protested in support of Sagaille over what they believed to be an unfair reaction by the assistant principal. One protest got out of hand as police were called in, some with riot gear. Seven police officers were injured and more than two dozen students were arrested.
