Police say an SUV pulled up to an outdoor party when three suspects exited the vehicle and began shooting indiscriminately into the crowd.
Many were gathered outside the venue, which was hosting a scheduled event and several patrons were standing outside in northwest Miami Dade County.
A fire rescue team responded, determined two victims were deceased on the scene and transported eight others to various hospitals in Miami-Dade and Broward.
In addition, over twelve other victims were self-transported to various hospitals. At least one victim was transported in critical condition.
A police official characterized the shooting as targeted and called it a quote “cowardly act.”
Authorities are still looking for the shooters this morning.
Detectives are seeking the assistance of the community with any information, to include the identity/whereabouts of the individuals responsible for this act.
Miami-Dade Police Director Alfredo “Freddy” Ramirez III reacted to the deadly incident, condemning gun violence.
I am at the scene of another targeted and cowardly act of gun violence, where over 20 victims were shot and 2 have sadly died. These are cold blooded murderers that shot indiscriminately into a crowd and we will seek justice. My deepest condolences to the family of the victims.
