Man Accused Of Firing At Miami Beach Cop Faces Multiple Charges MIAMI BEACH, FL --The man accused of opening fire on a Miami Beach police officer Friday has been identified as 34-year-old Terence Daniely of Riverview, Florida. Daniely was taken into custody following an armed robbery in South Beach, a wild police chase over the MacArthur Causeway and a manhunt that caused an interruption to Metrorail service for hundreds of public transit riders in downtown Miami. He was charged with attempted felony murder, robbery with a firearm, fleeing or eluding a police officer and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, according to Miami Beach police.

McKeough’s friends took to social media to remember their friend, known for always helping others.

“I met Shawn Mckeough Jr. when I was in the sixth grade,” friend Kristen Mononoke wrote on Facebook. “Shawn was a grade above me and I remember how mean girls in his class would be to me. They used to bully me and call me a boy, dumb things like that. Shawn would ALWAYS stick up for me.”

Authorities and family members called McKeough a hero for his actions

"It's just overwhelmingly emotional, especially when you involve a member of our armed services, someone who has stepped up and made the decision to defend their nation and take on that role," Sgt. Amy Cooper of the North Little Rock Police Department told NewsCenter Maine. "And to deal with the tragic death of a member such as Shawn Mckeough has just been difficult."
