CUTLER BAY, Fla. - A gunman killed a police officer and injured three others during a traffic stop Thursday, triggering a manhunt in a suburban Miami neighborhood, officials said. Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Alvarez confirmed that an officer died. The three survivors were in serious condition, police spokeswoman Linda O'Brien said.
The officers were conducting burglary surveillance when they stopped the man because he was driving a car erratically, said O'Brien. The man opened fire with a high-powered weapon and fled. It was not immediately clear whether the officers returned fire.
