MIAMI, FL -- Authorities say a man and woman tried to run down police officers, who then fired at their fleeing vehicle in the parking lot of Miami's Dolphin Mall.

The shooting happened Thursday night as the mall was crowded with shoppers and diners.

A Miami newspaper reports police confronted the couple, who they suspected of committing fraud at Saks Fifth Avenue. The couple got into a confrontation with an officer, throwing him to the ground.

Another officer opened fire as the woman took off, weaving in and out of traffic. She was run off the road near Florida's Turnpike.

The other suspect went to a nearby hotel and asked workers to call a cab.

Police pulled the cab over a few miles away. Both suspects were arrested on multiple charges.

    Remember folks, they are "innocent until proven guilty..." They are not, however, "suspects." Their actions, would preclude them from being suspected in this crime. Thanx
