VIDEO: 2 Miami-Dade Officers Recovering After Monday Night Ambush

Two undercover police officers conducting surveillance outside an apartment complex in northwest Miami-Dade were shot Monday night in an “ambush-style attack.” The officers are reportedly recovering from their wounds.

Miami-Dade police said the two officers were investigating gang activity in the area as part of a multi-agency task force. The detectives were in an unmarked police vehicle when, according to officials, several suspects “ambushed” the car and opened fire.

“They were ambushed in their vehicle, unprovoked,” Miami-Dade Police Maj. Hector Llevat said.

One of the detectives was able to return fire but it’s unknown if any of the suspects were shot, officials said. Hialeah Police said a suspect in the shooting later showed up at Hialeah Hospital with a gunshot wound.

Officials on Tuesday said they had detained several individuals and were interviewing them to determine their possible involvement in the shooting. One suspect was detained at the Hyatt Place on Northwest 35th Street across from Miami International Airport.

No arrests have been made, police told NBC Miami.
