Police say man tried ramming officers with his vehicle after attempting fraudulent bank transaction
NORTH MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – A man was killed in a police-involved shooting that took place in North Miami Beach on Monday afternoon.
According to police, a man was attempting to make a fraudulent transaction at a TD Bank branch located at 1190 Northeast 163rd Street.
As officers arrived on scene, the man attempted to flee in his dark gray Chevy Blazer and hit several police units as they attempted to stop the man’s vehicle, authorities said.
Officers fired back, in fear for their lives, and the man was killed inside his vehicle, according to police.
The man's car came to a stop at busy intersection of Northeast 163rd Street and 12th Avenue, which was shut down as police investigated.
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue responded and pronounced the man dead at the scene.
The man's car had a yellow tarp covering the front windows and windshield. That car, and another car just next to it, appeared to have been in some kind of collision.
According to authorities, four officers from the North Miami Beach Police Department opened fire on the man. They are all now on administrative leave, as is police after any shooting.
