Police Chief Edwin Lopez praised the 'heroic actions' of responding officers, who eliminated the threat​

Two people are dead and seven others injured after a shooting incident in Miami-Dade County, Florida early Saturday.

A police officer was among those wounded after an altercation at a commercial establishment in Doral City turned deadly when someone pulled a gun. A security guard who attempted to intervene was shot and killed, police said.

The quick response and "heroic actions" from City of Doral police officers at the scene "prevented an incident from escalating," Chief of Police Edwin Lopez told reporters at a news conference.

According to police, at around 3:30 a.m. there was a dispute between patrons at a martini bar at CityPlace Doral. When a security guard attempted to intervene, police say one of the patrons drew a firearm and fatally shot the guard.
