Miami Cop Thwarts Home Invasion of His House

Police are searching for three suspects

Miami-Dade police are on the hunt for three suspects who tried to rob an off-duty police officer Friday morning.

The home invasion occurred around 4:05 a.m., when the trio allegedly broke into the Miami Lakes home but were rudely greeted by gun fire from the Bay Harbor Island police officer. The shots sent the would-be robbers scurrying and one of the shots may have hit a suspect, Miami-Dade police said.

Shortly after the shooting, a man reportedly was admitted to Memorial Hospital Miramar with a gunshot wound.

Police said they are investigating whether the gunshot victim was involved in the failed home invasion.
