MIAMI (AP) - A Miami-Dade detective is in stable condition following surgery and a suspect is dead following an exchange of gunfire outside a suspected marijuana grow house.
The shooting happened Tuesday night when officers from the Miami-Dade Police Department and FBI agents knocked on the door of a home in a quiet South Florida neighborhood. Officers say a man in a car parked near the house started shooting as the investigators knocked on the door.
Neighbors told The Miami Herald (http://hrld.us/R3mAk4 ) they had no idea a grow house was in their neighborhood.
Detective Roy Rutland says the officer was resting after surgery with his family nearby. The name of the dead suspect has not been released. Another suspect is in police custody and criminal charges are pending.
