Roommates, we are sending our prayers to those who were affected by the shooting that took place early Sunday in Miami. Officials say that at least two people have died as a result of the shooting, and over 20 others were injured in the shooting as well.
According to NBC News, the Miami-Dade Police Department released a statement and said that three suspects got out of an SUV and “began shooting indiscriminately into the crowd.” The crowd of people were standing outside of a “scheduled event,” which took place at a banquet hall, that was rented out for a concert.
Once authorities arrived at the scene, they found at least two people dead, and eight people were transferred to hospitals within the area, and an additional 12 people transported themselves to local hospitals. At least one of the victims was in critical condition when they were transported to the hospital. Following the shooting, the suspects returned to their SUV and fled the scene.
Miami Dade Police Director Alfredo “Freddy” Ramirez III spoke about the incident and said, “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.”
