Philbrine Bell, Xavier D. Johnson and Odanahue Mairs were identified Saturday as the three men who took part in an armed robbery in South Miami-Dade Friday, and later fired at a police officer who had pulled them over as they fled.
The last of the three men was arrested late Friday. Police said Mairs, 22, used a baby as a shield when they apprehended him. It is not yet known whether it was his child. No one was injured during the arrest.
The three men are being charged with attempted murder of a police officer.
Police said Mairs, Johnson, 22, and Bell, 24, robbed a desk clerk at the Quality Inn on Southwest 145th Street and U.S. 1 after midnight on Friday, then fled in a white van. The victim called police and described their vehicle, according to a WFOR-CBS 4 report.
The three men were later pulled over by a plainclothes police officer. While the officer waited for backup, the men fired at the police car and drove away. The officer was not injured.
Police recovered a handgun and an assault rifle that were allegedly used in the shooting.
