MIAMI (AP) - Miami-Dade police say officers killed a man and woman who were suspects in a South Florida pharmacy robbery.

Officers responded to a Kendall CVS Friday afternoon, and a security guard pointed out a car that was attempting to flee.

When two officers tried to approach the vehicle, police say the woman driving the car tried to hit an officer. Both officers fired into the car, killing the woman and wounding the man.

The man was taken to a nearby hospital, where he died Friday evening.

The names of the dead suspects weren't immediately released.

The officers were not injured.
