A Miami-Dade police officer was critically injured on Monday in a shooting in Miami. 

The shooting in Miami began at around 8:15 PM when an armed robbery suspect led Miami-Dade police officers on a car chase in the Liberty City neighborhood.

The suspect crashed his vehicle into a police cruiser and another car while trying to escape.

The armed robbery suspect was shot by police and died at the scene.

Miami Dade Police Chief Alfredo Ramirez said he is asking “our community to please stand as one and pray.”

“I ask our community to please stand as one and pray. We have hard days ahead of us. We have to do this together as one, as a community, as a law enforcement family. Right now, all I ask for is prayers and good thoughts, and unity,” Ramirez said.
