The men suspected of shooting an off-duty Miami-Dade police officer on Saturday have been arrested.
Police had been looking for three men after the officer was shot outside a Northwest Miami-Dade church. On Sunday morning, the Miami-Dade police department confirmed at least two of those men were in custody.
According to authorities, the men tried to rob the officer as he was leaving church at 6701 NW 7th Avenue. One of the men shot the victim with a semi-automatic pistol, before all three took off in a red Pontiac G6.
Police said that the officer called 911 after he was shot. A responding officer put his fellow officer into the back of his patrol car and drove him to the hospital.
Officers on the scene said that the wounded cop is a sexual battery detective.
He was released from Jackson Memorial Hospital Saturday night, police said.
"He's in good spirits. He's alert and speaking," Lt. Rosanna Cordero-Stutz told WPLG-TV.
"A collective sigh of relief is all I can tell you that was felt across Miami-Dade Police Department as well as hopefully the entire community. This is a worst-case scenario for us. As you know, it is still fresh in our history where we have lost officers in the line of duty and everyday we pray that doesn't happen," she said.
The department had said it would offer rewards for information leading them to the suspects, but detectives have not said how they found the men.
