Officer Cesar Echaverry was hurt in a shootout in Miami on Monday night, but his death came as a surprise. Around 8 o’clock, something bad happened in Liberty City near 67th Street and 17th Avenue.
The department says that Miami-Dade police stopped a white car that was linked to a previous robbery, but the driver wouldn’t get out when asked.
The driver then hit a few police cars, ran away, and hit a car with a person in it about ten blocks away.
After the crash, there was a shooting, and according to the police, one of the Robbery Intervention Detail detectives was seriously hurt.
Cesar Echaverry was shot, and the person who did it was dead when police arrived. Echaverry has been a member of the Miami-Dade Police Department for five years and was put in charge of the team that deals with robberies.
The Miami Herald said that his friends said he was moving up and getting married.
The newspaper said that Monday’s shooting wasn’t the first time he had come close to dying. In March 2018, Echaverry was a passenger in a police cruiser that hit another car and killed its 45-year-old driver.
A robbery suspect has been found
The robbery suspect, Jeremy Horton, was found after Echaverry was shot in the head in Miami when he tried to stop him.
When the armed robbers in a white car tried to get away, they crashed into two police cars and a civilian car. The three people in the civilian car were taken to the hospital in stable condition, the police said.
The white car was then followed by Echaverry and other police officers. The driver, Jeremy Horton, was shot and killed on the spot. He was 32 years old and from Acworth, Georgia.
Rudy Herbello, the chief of police in Golden Beach, Florida, said that Horton was pulled over in South Florida on August 8 and given a ticket for driving without insurance, having an expired tag, and having a license that was suspended in Georgia.
