MIAMI (AP) — Authorities say police shot and killed four robbery suspects near Miami who showed up wearing ski masks and carrying guns at a fake drug house run by the police department.

Miami-Dade police say the men were under investigation for several violent home robberies. On Thursday night, they entered the house, believing a false tip planted by investigators that there was a stash of marijuana inside.

Police spokesman Alvaro Zabaleta said the men were confronted by detectives.

Officers told the men to put down their weapons but they did not comply. A confrontation ensued and all four were shot. No police were injured.

Investigators say one of the men killed was a cooperating defendant who had alerted detectives to the suspects. He had been advised not to go with the men.
