Miami-Dade Police said they arrested the third suspect in the robbery of a Quality Inn after he left a home holding a small child as a shield Saturday morning.
Investigators were able to convince Odanahue Mairs to release the child and he was taken into custody without incident after he left the home at 14120 NW 23rd Place. He was arrested at 6 a.m., police said.
Mairs, 22, was a driver in a robbery at the Quality Inn at 14501 South Dixie Highway two nights ago, police said.
The three men escaped in a white van, which was later stopped, and Mairs left the vehicle and fired several shots at officers with an assault-type rifle, while Philbrine Bell, 24, fired two shots with a chrome revolver, according to police.
They and Xavier D. Johnson, 22, escaped, but Bell and Johnson were later arrested, police said. They searched the South Miami Heights neighborhood on Friday, but Mairs broke a perimeter that was set up and avoided capture, police said.
But investigators later determined that Mairs was at 14120 NW 23rd Place and ordered to him to surrender, police said.
Mairs faces three counts of attempted murder of a police officer, police said.
He was being held on no bond Saturday afternoon, according to Miami-Dade Corrections online records. It was not immediately known whether he has an attorney.
Miami-Dade Police spokesman Det. Alvaro Zabaleta said no other suspects are at large in the case.
