MIAMI FLA. Nov. 6, 2007
A teacher was shot Tuesday outside at a Miami-area high school during an apparent robbery, but was expected to survive, a school district spokesman said.
The suspected shooter had not been captured, and at least a dozen officers in SWAT gear were staking out an apartment complex near the school. Police had sealed off all the complex’s exits and a police helicopter was hovering above. Carol City elementary, middle and senior high schools were on lockdown, said Quintin Taylor, a spokesman for Miami-Dade County Public Schools.
No students inside the school have been injured,” he said. The male teacher was shot in the lower body, said Taylor. The hospital where he was being treated, Jackson Memorial Hospital, did not release his condition. The teacher had been taking a cigarette break across the street from the school during lunch when he was confronted by another man who tried to rob him, Taylor said. A 911 call reported the shooting before noon at Miami Carol City Senior High School, Miami-Dade Police Detective Alvaro Zabaleta said.
