Two undercover police detectives in Miami were wounded when a group of gang members fired dozens of shots into their unmarked car Monday night in an ambush, the Miami-Dade Police Department said.

Police apprehended several suspects early Tuesday and charges were pending, police spokesman Alvaro Zabaleta told Reuters. The attack on the detectives occurred as they conducted surveillance for gang activity outside an apartment complex in northwestern Miami, police said in a news release.

The department declined to say how many men took part in the ambush.

Detective Terence White, 47, was shot in the foot and was being treated at a Miami hospital. Detective Charles Woods, 37, was released from the same hospital after being treated for a gunshot wound to an arm.

The officers’ unmarked car was riddled with dozens of bullet holes, Zabaleta said.

One of the detectives returned fire but it was not known if he hit any of the attackers, police said.

Other police officers near the scene rushed the officers to the hospital in the back of a pickup truck, according to video broadcast by local television stations. The video showed the two wounded men walking into the emergency room with support from fellow officers.

The officers were taking part in a multiagency operation on gang activity, ABC reports.

“Individuals like this — that have the audacity to ambush a vehicle unprovoked and open fire like that — are individuals in this community that are causing havoc and terrorizing this community day in and day out,” said Maj. Hector Llevat of the Miami-Dade Police Department. “These are the officers that were out here to put a stop to that.”

Police said the suspected assailants remain at large and described them as being 17 to 18 years old and wearing dark-colored hooded sweatshirts at the time of the shooting.

“We do whatever we have to do to save our officers,” said MDPD Director Juan Perez. “We got lucky tonight that the officers will survive. It’s not going to deter us. In fact, what this does is the opposite.”

This garbage needs to end NOW!

Stay safe out there blue!


God Bless.
