Armed men lead police on chase through SW Dade Canals

Has anyone heard from Hialeah Angler? I think he may have been the rifleman.


Armed men lead police on boat chase through SW Miami-Dade canals

The men were taken into custody Thursday after leading police on nearly an hour-long chase through several Southwest Miami-Dade canals.
Around 1:20 a.m., a police officer who lives the area heard gunfire of Southwest 74th Avenue and Eighth Street and went outside to see what was going on. He traced the shots to a boat in a nearby canal.
Inside the 12-foot boat were three men reportedly armed with at least one rifle. He called it in to police dispatch.
When officers arrived and approached the boat, the men took off. Miami-Dade police launched a helicopter and officers in the area assisted in the chase.
Police officers on stationed on bridges tried to stop the boat at several locations only to be fired on. Several officers fired back.
It all came to an end near Snapper Creek Drive and Southwest 112th Avenue where the men surrendered. One was treated for a minor injury, possibly the result of a bullet graze. At least one firearm was recovered. No officers were injured.
The names of the men have not been released.
