Police in South Florida say two people have died and 20 to 25 people have been injured in a shooting outside a banquet hall that had been rented out for a concert. (May 30)
ALFREDO RAMIREZ: This billiard establishment was rented out for a concert. During the concert, patrons were standing outside of the business when a white SUV pulled up, where three subjects stepped out of the vehicle with assault rifles and handguns and began shooting indiscriminately into the crowd, of which we believe is a targeted act of gun violence.
Unfortunately, multiple people were shot. As of right now, we have 20 to 25 victims at various hospitals around the community as well as two deceased victims on the scene. This is a despicable act of gun violence, a cowardly act. We have our investigators on the scene.
We're asking for any information from the community. Anyone who has any tips on these individuals, please give it to us. 305-471-TIPS. This type of gun violence has to stop. Every weekend, it's the same thing. This is targeted. This is definitely not random. My condolences to the families and to the victims.
