Morning Shooter Meant to Kill Cops, Detectives Say

Neighbors near Westview Country Club awoke to the sound of gunshots at 3:20 this morning. According to Miami-Dade police, cops responded to a domestic dispute at the small home of a 24-year-old convict named Yves "Carl Love" Guerrier. He was choking his sister and carring a wooden bat. While cops were investigating, he fled by foot. Police then found him hiding next to his silver Pontiac Grand Prix several blocks away. (On Northwest 126th Street and Northwest 18th Avenue.)

As cops approached the car, he allegedly "ran out into the middle of the roadway" and "began to fire multiple shots at the officers." Cops ran for cover and MDPD special response team showed up, at which point Guerrier surrendered.

Records show Guerrier lived in a rundown $52,234 home on the cusp of Opa Locka and was busted for third degree theft in 2004 and Culpable Negligence in 2005. A judge found him guilty in each case.

New charges are now pending. Guerrier is in custody and couldn't be reached for comment.

Update: Guerrier was charged with the attempted murder of a police officer and felony battery.
