A police-involved shooting at a Miami-Dade County flea market has left one suspect dead and another wounded, a police spokeswoman said.

The events began Sunday when an apparent crime victim followed two robbery suspects and told police that the suspects’ gold minivan was parked at Flea Market USA at Northwest 30th Avenue and Northwest 79th Street, police said.

Police approached the suspects’ vehicle and ordered the suspects out of it, but the minivan instead went in reverse and rammed one of the officers’ vehicles, according to Miami-Dade police spokeswoman Lt. Rosanna Cordero-Stutz.

“At that time there was a shooting,” Cordero-Stutz said.

Whether either suspect opened fire still was under investigation, police said.

The minivan’s driver died, police said. The passenger was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital, police said. Both men were thought to be in their 20s, police said.

The person who reported the location of the suspects’ vehicle said he had followed the suspects to the flea market after a home-invasion robbery had happened at his residence, police said.
