Officers are still searching for a burglary suspect who they say opened fire during a pursuit in Miami-Dade Thursday morning.
Police responded to reports of a burglary at a home in the 300 block of Northeast 87th Street, located in El Portal, around 3:30 a.m.
Officers responded to the home and the suspect fled in a pickup truck, setting off a police pursuit, officials said.
During the pursuit, the suspect fired at officers, El Portal Police Lt. Alejandro Mendez said.
The suspect eventually bailed out of the truck in the area of Northeast 79th Street and 4th Avenue, Mendez said. There was a foot pursuit but the suspect wasn't found.
No officers were injured in the incident, Mendez said.
"The subject might be armed, so we take the precaution of letting everybody know, always secure your home, always secure your vehicles," Mendez said.
