    A suspect wanted for questioning by police for an attempted murder was caught after being taken down by a Miami Beach K9 officer named Mikey.

    Police said the man, identified as 44-year-old Gerardo Martinez Reygaida, was taken into custody Thursday about and hour after a perimeter was set up in the area of Northwest 27th Avenue and Northwest 36th Street.

    Police said Reygaida was paying for gas at a Shell gas station when he realized police were on to him and he tried to flee. That's when he allegedly jumped into the bushes and was stopped by Mikey.

    Reygaida was wanted for questioning in connection with a Sept. 30, 2013 attempted murder in Hialeah, officials said.
