Alexander Carballido, 40, was fatally shot after he fled from police officers and led them on a chase that ended near Northwest Seventh Street and Northwest 72nd Avenue.
FBI Special Agent Brian Waterman said the suspect was armed with a rifle and exchanged gunfire with officers from the Miami-Dade and Miami police departments.
Carballido was pronounced dead at the scene.
"He was involved in a hate crime investigation," Waterman said, declining to provide specifics.
Miami-Dade police Detective Alvaro Zabaleta said Carballido fled from officers and a police pursuit ensued, during which time shots were fired.
A high-powered rifle was recovered at the scene.
Waterman said nobody else was wounded in the shootout.
