Hurricane Irma makes landfall in Florida, wreaking destruction

Video has emerged of police arresting looters in Miami, while NBC is also reporting that a 17-year-old male was also shot by an officer.

The network is reporting that almost a dozen looters have been arrested, with many caught carrying sneakers after ransacking sports shops.

"Going to prison over a pair of sneakers is a fairly bad life choice," Fort Lauderdale Police Chief Rick Maglione said in a statement. "Stay home and look after your loved ones and be thankful they are all safe."

The shooting take place in the early hours of Sunday morning, US time, after a couple who had evacuated their home were alerted to a break in via a surveillance system.
