2 Dead Following Dirt Bike Theft In Miami-Dade

A dirt bike theft led to a pursuit and two men being killed Friday morning in Miami Gardens, authorities said.

Miami Gardens Police officials say two men stole a dirt bike in Opa-locka and were confronted by the bike's owner. After being spotted, police say the two took off on the bike and the owner then got into his car to chase them.

According to police, the dirt bike and the car collided in Miami Gardens. One man ran from the scene and collapsed next to a home.

Miami Gardens police said shots were fired at some point during this chase, but it's unclear when. It's also unclear if the men were killed in the crash or by gunfire.

The owner of the dirt bike is cooperating with police.
