Officer Shot Teen in Neck After Car Chase Near Miami

Miami (AP) -- A police sergeant chased and shot a 15-year-old who was running with a Glock handgun after crashing a car into a fence, police said. The teen remained in critical condition Monday as the shooting is investigated.

The 29-year Miami-Dade police veteran who shot the teen was serving on Operation Community Shield, a joint state-federal-local task force focused on violent crime. His patrol unit has been busy in the aftermath of the killing of Miami rapper Wavy Navy Pooh in an ambush shooting on Friday evening.
