Two people are dead and more than 20 others were injured in a mass shooting early Sunday, Miami-Dade Police Department said.
According to reports, three people got out of a white Nissan Pathfinder and began shooting into a crowd of people who were standing outside of a “scheduled event” on 186th Street.
Law enforcement officials are still searching for the shooters.
Miami-Dade Police Department Director Freddy Ramirez said the shooting was a targeted attack.
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.
