    • The officer involved, whose name was not released, was evaluated by paramedics but was not hurt according to MDPD Director Juan Perez.

    A woman was found murdered in a Miami-Dade home and an officer shot and killed a man armed with a knife during what police believe was a domestic violence incident involving a husband and wife Wednesday morning.

    The incident began when police received a call from the home in the gated Caribe Lakes community near Southwest 32nd Street and 157th Avenue shortly after 7 a.m., Miami-Dade Police Director Juan Perez said.

    Perez said the first officer who arrived found the woman dead inside the home in what he described as a "horrific scene." The officer quickly encountered the man with the knife and the officer opened fire and killed the man, Perez said.

    Perez called it "a domestic incident that resulted in tragedy." He said the woman's adult child and a teen were found unharmed in the home.
