The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating a police-involved shooting that left a man dead in northwest Miami-Dade Wednesday night.
According to police, three Miami Dade police officers on bike patrols responded to a call involving shots around 840 NW 76th St.
“Upon arrival, a confrontation ensued between the officers and the subject,” a police press release said. “One of the officers retrieved a firearm and shot at the subject, fatally wounding him.”
Police identified 22-year-old Tevin Barkley as the man who died at the scene. None of the officers were injured.

Police have not released the names of the officers involved, or any details about the shooting. Miami-Dade police officers do not wear body cameras and as the responding officers were on bikes, there is no dash cam video of the incident.
Police said an automatic firearm—a Cobray M11 assault weapon— was recovered afterward.
Barkleyhas had multiple run-ins with the law in the last two years, records show.
Homestead police arrested Barkley in December after refusing to leave the home where the mother of his two children live.
"He was intoxicated and was playing with a firearm," she told police, according to an arrest report. After a brief chase, Barkley was taken into custody.
Barkley accepted a plea deal for illegally carrying a concealed weapon.
According to court records, Barkley had two other arrests in Miami-Dade.
In January 2014, he was arrested and charged with punching his children's mother in the face. Prosecutors later dropped the misdemeanor battery charge.
One month later, Barkley was arrested and charged with trespassing at a Biscayne Boulevard supermarket. He was fined, but never paid.
