Twitter is buzzing with reports of an “active shooter” on the loose in Miami, Fla. The suspect is reported to have fired at police with what is said to be an automatic weapon, and he apparently lit his own home on fire. The public is being warned to stay inside.
A machine gun? Let’s call that an unconfirmed report for now.
Some are quick to draw connections to Christopher Dorner, especially given that a burning house is involved.
Twitchy will keep you updated if more details become available.
Update: Police are searching for three men.
