A Miami cop was rushed to the hospital in critical condition early Friday after a recently fired female officer shot him in the head in what officials said was a domestic incident.
The unnamed officer had been in a relationship with the shooter, a former Miami-Dade Schools officer, when he was shot off-duty in Hialeah, Miami-Dade Police (MDPD) said.
The suspect has been placed in custody.
“One of our MDPD officers was shot off-duty in what appears to be a domestic incident,” the agency wrote on Twitter.
The victim’s fellow officers swarmed Miami’s Jackson Memorial Hospital, where he remained in the facility’s trauma unit Friday morning.
Officials said they would provide updates on the incident later Friday.
“We ask for your prayers,” the agency tweeted Friday morning.
