Today is Thursday, April 29 and these are the main news of the day:
1. At least five people were injured in a shooting at a northeast Miami-Dade home. Officers who came to the residence initially encountered a man and a woman, who were taken to the Ryder Trauma Center. Three others who were also shot were admitted to North Shore Hospital.
2. The Miami police officer who beat a homeless man accused of stealing a piece of chicken in a Publix was relieved of his position. The man took a piece of chicken and began to eat it on his way out. The officer intervened, pushed him, beat him and arrested him. The homeless man was charged with lesser charges and the police officer awaits the outcome of the investigation.
