Armed man injured in shooting after barricading himself, confronting Aventura police

Man's injuries not life-threatening, police say


AVENTURA, Fla. – An officer-involved shooting was reported Sunday afternoon at an Aventura apartment complex, authorities said.

Aventura police said officers were called to the Camden Aventura apartments at 3150 NE 190th St. about 4 p.m., adding that they arrived to find a man barricaded inside his apartment.

Police said the man exited his apartment and confronted officers with a gun. Police said the man was then wounded in the leg by gunfire.

"All of our officers are trained in crisis-intervention training and we try to seek out a nice outcome whenever we do deal with individuals, but, unfortunately, some people take it to a level where we have no choice but to protect ourselves, and this was one of those issues," Maj. Michael Bentolila told Local 10 News.

The wound is not life-threatening and the man was being treated at an area hospital, department officials said.

No officers were injured during the incident, police said.
