Police: Officer shoots subject at The Falls in SW Miami-Dade


A subject had to be taken to the hospital after, police said, an officer opened fire at The Falls shopping center in Southwest Miami-Dade, marking the second time in a week shots were fired at a South Florida mall.

Miami-Dade Police and Fire Rescue personnel were called to the shopping center, at 8888 SW 136th St., just before 9 p.m., Friday.

According to police, there is no active shooter at the mall, but at least one person was struck by bullets after a “police shooting.” They later clarified an officer shot a subject at the shopping center.

Paramedics have transported the subject to Jackson South Medical Center in unknown condition. No officers were hurt during the shooting, police said.

Friday night’s shooting at The Falls is the second shooting at a South Florida mall in the past week.

Last Saturday, five people had to be taken to the hospital after shots were fired at Aventura Mall following an altercation between two groups of people.

Although several people were detained in connection to the Aventura Mall shooting, police have not said if they made an arrest in the case.

The shooting at The Falls is under investigation.
