MIAMI (AP) - Authorities say a Miami-Dade police officer fatally shot a suspect outside a pawn shop.
Police say detectives responded to the business Tuesday morning as part of a criminal investigation. When the detectives allowed 40-year-old Charles William Collins to go to his car parked outside to retrieve his identification, police say Collins jumped in the Volkswagen and began accelerating toward the detectives. A detective shot and wounded Collins. He was taken to a Miami trauma center, where he later died.
Authorities say a woman who had been in the car with Collins was arrested on an unrelated probation violation warrant. She was not injured.
Police didn't immediately identify the detective who shot Collins.
