MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The Miami police are asking residents of one neighborhood to keep their eyes out for a gun which was involved in a police involved shooting on Saturday.
According to department spokeswoman Keandra Simmons around 6 a.m. their officers heard gunshots in the area of SW 11th Avenue between 7th and 8th Streets. Moving in to check it out, Simmons said an officer was involved in a shooting incident and subsequently a foot chase.
During the chase, Simmons said one of the subjects stashed a gun somewhere in the neighborhood.
Police performed an extensive search for it but came up empty. Simmons said their primary concern is to keep that gun out of the wrong hand or a child's hand so that no one get's hurt. Anyone seeing the weapon is urged to contact the police immediately.
Parents are also reminded to warn their children about coming in contact with guns; do not to touch them and inform an adult they trust immediately.
