Fla. cop killed, another wounded in shooting

The two officers were reportedly working with a U.S. Marshals Service fugitive task force at the time of the shooting

MIAMI — Authorities say a Miami-Dade police officer was killed and another was wounded in a shooting.

Miami-Dade Police Cmdr. Nancy Perez says the second officer was in surgery after Thursday's shooting.

Perez also says at least one suspect was shot.

Barry Golden, a spokesman for the U.S. Marshals Service in South Florida, says the two officers were working with a Marshals fugitive task force. The task force works to arrest people wanted for crimes from all over the country. He didn't immediately have details on the operation in Miami.

Miami-Dade Public Schools says two schools have been placed on lockdown as a result of the shooting. Those schools are: Thena Crowder Elementary School and Jesse McCrary Elementary School.
