No. 1 – Police are investigating a fatal hit and run crash that left one person dead in a Sunrise road late Wednesday night.
Officers were at the scene along Pone Island Road near Oakland Park Boulevard just after 11:30 p.m. after receiving calls of the possible crash.
No. 2 - Police bodycam footage shows the tense moments a suspect fired gunshots at officers when they responded to an apartment in Doral.
Units from the Doral Police Department showed up Monday night to an apartment in Doral Manors on NW 85th Street, just blocks away from CityPlace, regarding a burglary in progress.
In the footage, released Wednesday, the officers are in tactical position in a hallway and feared there was an active shooter and victims inside the apartment, an arrest report stated.
No. 3 - Surveillance cameras captured an 89-year-old custodian fighting off an attempted robber who threw bags of garbage and a trash bin at the man before running away in Little Havana.
The strong-armed robbery happened at approximately 5:30 a.m. May 30 at a parking lot on 1220 SW 3rd Street, City of Miami police said. The victim was talking out the trash at work when the suspect ran through an open gate and demanded he give him his watch.
No. 4 - Retired Broward County school resource deputy Scot Peterson spent the night in jail, as his attorneys prepare to argue Thursday that he should be released on his personal recognizance.
Peterson faces seven felony counts of child neglect, one for each student under 18 who died or was injured on the third floor of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school building where 17 died in February 2018.
No. 5 - Thousands of people and a handful of surviving U.S. D-Day veterans are gathering at the Normandy American Cemetery to honor thousands fallen in the pivotal invasion 75 years ago.
Veterans themselves took places on the stage where President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron spoke, to the sound of wartime American songs and military music.
No. 6 - Authorities say two female acquaintances vanished with more than half a million dollars in jewelry from star NFL running back Le'Veon Bell's South Florida home.
Hollywood police say Bell returned from the gym May 25 and found the women gone and his jewelry missing. The police report obtained by The Associated Press refers to the two women as Bell's girlfriends.
