    Monroe County Sheriff's Office deputies swept Coral Shores High Monday morning, following an unconfirmed report of a white male, "possibly carrying something resembling a gun," MCSO spokeswoman Becky Herrin said.

    According to Herrin, deputies who were already at the school, initiated a campus lockdown and began clearing the building just before 7:50 a.m.

    "The incident at the school started when a report was received at 7:48 a.m. of a possible armed subject seen at the school," Herrin said. "The School Resource Officer assigned to the school worked with school administrators to initiate a lock down of students and teachers and then immediately began searching, beginning with the media room where the armed subject was reportedly seen."

    Herrin said authorities had checked each room by 10 a.m. and fond no sign of suspicious activity or any suspicious person.

    The school lockdown has since been lifted.

    "We are, of course, relieved that this turned out to be a false alarm but it is important we all treat any report seriously," Sheriff Rick Ramsay said. "The safety of children in our schools and our community remains the highest priority to all of us here at the Sheriff's Office."

    Parents are now allowed to pick up their children at the school if they wish.

    A pair of car burglars targeted an underground garage in Coral Gables over the weekend, police said.

    Alejandro Rodriguez, 19, and John Gomez, 18, were arrested Sunday on charges of vehicle burglary and petit theft.

    According to police, the two men entered an underground garage at 6815 Edgewater Drive just after 3 a.m. and broke into several cars.

    Video surveillance showed a gold 2004 Nissan Altima, owned by one of the suspect's mothers, inside the garage. Both men were later found by detectives at their homes in Miami and Hialeah and taken to the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center.

    Police said they are still trying to determine whether the pair were involved in any other crimes.

    Miami-Dade police are searching for a man who shot a convenience store clerk multiple times.

    The shooting was reported at about 6:30 a.m. Monday at the Shapon Food Mart at 29601 SW 162nd Ave.

    The victim, identified as Sikeer Aktaruzzaman, 69, was airlifted to Kendall Regional Medical Center, where he is listed in critical condition.

    A friend who works at a gas station near the victim said Aktaruzzaman has owned the food mart for 13 years and is from Bangladesh. Huda Mohammad said Aktaruzzzman opens the store each day and works until noon when his two sons take over.

    "It's very unfortunate that it happened because I'm working in the gas station and we're working from day into night," Mohammad said.

    According to Mohammad, Aktaruzzaman was shot three times and underwent surgery.

    One of the victim's sons told Local 10 News reporter Erica Rakow that he does not know whether his father was shot during an attempted robbery or whether anything was taken from the store.  

    Detective also said the motive remains unclear at this time. The gunman was only described by police as a black male.

    Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call police or Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.

    A 4-month-old puppy was returned to her owners after the media broadcasted surveillance video showing a boy stealing the dog from a Coral Springs home.

    The theft happened just after 11:30 a.m. Sunday at a home in the 4100 block of Northwest 78th Lane.

    The video shows the boy reaching over a chain-link fence in the back yard to play with the poodle mix, named Lily.

    He is then seen picking up the puppy and leaving the area.

    Lily’s owners, Cassandra Ruise and her sister, Crystal Ruise, said Lily had not yet been microchipped and she did not have a collar on at the time she was taken.

    The value of the puppy is $600.

    According to Coral Springs police spokesman Joe McHugh, Lily was returned Monday afternoon after the 13-year-old boy's mother turned her son in to police.

    Police said the boy saw the surveillance video and admitted to stealing the dog, saying that he took her because he knew that his mother would not buy him one.

    Police said the Ruise sisters refused to press charges against the boy and are just happy to have their puppy back.

    An inmate at the Monroe County Detention Center on Stock Island faces a charge of aggravated battery after he tried to strangle his cellmate for snoring too loudly, Monroe County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin said.

    A corrections deputy working in the cell block said he heard cries for help coming from one of the cells Saturday afternoon. When the deputy approached the cell, he saw Darvin Murillo, 30, sitting on top of David Reedy, 61, Herrin said.

    Murillo had a mesh laundry bag wrapped around Reedy's neck and was trying to strangle him, Herrin said.

    The deputy intervened and pulled Murillo off Reedy.

    Herrin said Murillo told the deputy he attacked his cellmate because he snored too loudly.

    Reedy said he woke up to find the bag around his neck. Reedy said he struggled with Murillo for several minutes before being able to scream for help.

    Murillo has been in jail since his May arrest on burglary and criminal mischief charges. Herrin said he broke into a Marathon home while a couple and their child were sleeping inside.

    Reedy was arrested in January on a charge of violating sex offender registration requirements. He was treated for his injuries at the medical unit of the jail.

    Zoo Miami closed its doors to the public Monday because of high levels of flooding at the park from record rainfall over the weekend.

    Zoo Miami spokesman Ron Magill said some public walkways were under water.

    "In addition, because many of the zoo exhibits use moats as barriers between the animals and visitors, those exhibits cannot be opened," Magill said in a statement. "For potentially dangerous animals such as carnivores and primates, the high water levels create a bridge that the animals could possibly swim across which presents an obvious danger and concern."

    According to Magill, the high water levels also pose a drowning threat to certain animals such as antelope and other hoofstock.

    Employees are expected to work throughout the day to try to bring the water levels down, however Magill said it would be difficult as more rain is forecast throughout the day.

    "I've been here for 36 years working for the zoo and I have never even seen something close to this in November and December," Magill said. "These weather patterns have changed dramatically. This rain is historic as far as the zoo is concerned."

    About 3,000 animals call Zoo Miami home. Most have been moved to elevated areas, where they will remain until their exhibits dry out.

    The zoo will remain closed to the public until water levels at the park recede to the point where employees feel it does not pose any further safety threat to the animals or guests. Zoo officials said it's unlikely that the park will reopen Tuesday.

    A graphic video showing Miami Beach police fatally shoot a bank robbery suspect over the weekend will be key in determining whether the police-involved shooting was justified.

    According to police, David Winesett, 51, attempted to rob a Bank of America branch at 1414 Alton Road on Saturday and was later seen entering the Razzle Dazzle Barber Shop on Alton Road.

    After police received calls about the incident, Winesett was seen banging on the windows of the the Razzle Dazzle Barber Shop on Alton Road before walking in and grabbing a straight-edge razor. Police said Winesett initially refused to exit the barber shop, but he later came outside shirtless and holding the razor in his hand.

    The video shows one officer deploy his Taser as soon as Winesett raises his arm, demanding orders to drop the razor.

    Almost simultaneously, another officer fires two shots at Winesett.

    "He's refusing police commands, he's got the razor up here (and) he just did this when he turned around," retired Hialeah police officer Walter Philbrick told Local 10 News. "He is a danger to all four officers there."

    According to detectives, shortly before the shooting Winesett had handed a bank teller a note demanding cash and threatening that he had a bomb on him.

    No bomb was ever found.

    Miami Beach police Detective Kathleen Prieto said Winesett had been in the custody of the Federal Bureau of Prisons two days prior to the shooting. He had been relocated to a prisoner rehabilitation center which houses prisoners completing their sentence.

    Prieto said at the time of the robbery, Winesett was considered an escapee from the facility.

    Winesett was completing a 151-month sentence for bank robberies committed in Florida. His criminal history includes:

    * Purchase, possession or sale of marijuana

    * Depositing bad checks

    * Theft by taking

    * Theft and possession of stolen property

    * Extortion

    * Bank robberies

    The Miami-Dade Police Department and the State Attorney's Office is investigating the shooting.

    Authorities are investigating after a minivan crashed into a restaurant in Plantation Monday afternoon.

    Sky 10 was above a shopping plaza at 1818 N. University Drive shortly after 2:30 p.m. as paramedics placed a woman on a stretcher and into an ambulance. The car was deep inside the restaurant.

    A man was also seen being examined by paramedics.
