MIAMI (AP) -  

A man was fatally shot in South Florida during a police pursuit.
 
It wasn't immediately clear who shot the man, but Opa-locka officials say police have a second man in custody, and officers were looking for a weapon in a nearby canal. The Miami Herald (http://hrld.us/11FIpOh ) reports that an officer involved in Thursday's pursuit suffered an ankle injury after exiting his car.
 
Earlier Thursday, Miami-Dade police shot 32-year-old Jeffrey Paul while investigating a cell phone theft.
 
Police say uniformed officers went to a home to investigate the reported theft, and Paul was armed with a handgun when he opened the door.
 
Investigators say there was a brief confrontation during which shots were fired. Paul was airlifted to a hospital in serious but stable condition.
 
No officers were injured.
