Two people were in custody and another remained at large after a police-involved shooting in Southwest Miami-Dade Monday afternoon, police said.

Miami-Dade undercover officers attempted to pull over a car driving erratically in the area of 268th Street and 134th Avenue. The vehicle ended up crashing into another car with three people inside.

Upon impact, three suspects in the pursued vehicle bailed out and started shooting at officers, police said. Gunfire was returned, but no one was hit. Two of the suspects were caught, but the third person remained on the loose.

"These are very dangerous individuals. We were very fortunate to have two in custody. We were very fortunate to recover two firearms," said Det. Argemis Colome.

Aerial footage of the scene showed at least three damaged vehicles . The three innocent people involved in the wreck were taken to Homestead Hospital which is owned by Baptist Health, officials said. They are expected to be okay.

Roads near the scene were blocked off as detectives investigated the shooting.
