At one point, two of the suspects got out of the car and that's when an officer shot a suspect, who was taken to a nearby hospital in stable condition.

Two of the suspects were taken into custody at the scene. Several officers were seen responding to the area and a police helicopter was also at the scene as authorities searched for the other suspect, who was later caught.

Placide was shot by an officer during the takedown in Miami Lakes. He was treated at the hospital and released.  He along with the three teens remain behind bars on several charges including armed robbery and fleeing and eluding the police and resisting arrest.

Police said three firearms were found in the car, a Chevy Malibu believed to be involved in a carjacking last week.
