A robbery suspect carjacked two vehicles, shot two law enforcement officers on the Florida Turnpike late Thursday, and then committed suicide.
Among the wounded officers is Key Biscayne Police Officer Nelia Real, a 16-year veteran.
David Edwin Bradley's crime spree began at 2:20 p.m. Thursday, when carjacked a vehicle in Northwest Miami-Dade. Bradley, 23, then drove to Maxim Cuts barber shop in Pembroke Pines, where he demanded the shop's money and customer wallets.
As he left the shop with about $350, a security guard chased him down the street, where he fired his weapon and carjacked an Infiniti G35. Bradley attempted to flee on the Turnpike and crashed near Hollywood.
Officer Real was driving home after finishing a shift and stopped at the crash to help. Officer Real was shot in the face while she sat in the driver's seat of her marked unit. Broward Sheriff's Office deputy Osvaldo Petitfrere rushed Officer Real to the hospital, where she is in stable condition.
Bradley also shot Gabriel Martinez, an Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agent who responded to the crash, in the arm. BSO deputy Enid Conley, 23, was also injured when she was involved in an accident on I-95 and Sheridan Street while responding to the scene.
