    Police have identified the two suspects involved in an officer-involved shooting Sunday at a Miami-Dade flea market that left one of them dead and another in critical condition.

    The shooting happened shortly before 3 p.m. in the area of Northwest 79th Street and Northwest 30th Avenue as officers were investigating a home invasion robbery in the area, Miami-Dade Police said.

    According to police, the victim in the home invasion followed the suspects, identified as 21-year-old Michael Nathaniel Parks and 23-year-old Lebron Warren to the flea market, where several officers were already working due to the holiday shopping season.

    When officers approached a vehicle matching the description of the suspects' vehicle, Warren put the car in reverse and drove towards the officers, hitting an unmarked patrol car, police said.

    Shots were fired as the car continued to flee, hitting other parked cars before coming to a stop.

    Warren was pronounced dead at the scene and Parks was taken to a nearby hospital in critical condition. None of the officers were injured.

    Police are still investigating the incident and are asking anyone with information to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
