HIALEAH, Fla. (AP) — Police in South Florida say two people have died and 20 to 25 people have been injured in a shooting outside a banquet hall.
News outlets report the gunfire erupted early Sunday at the El Mula Banquet Hall in northwest Miami-Dade County, near Hialeah. The banquet hall had been rented out for a concert.
A police official says three people got out of an SUV and opened fire on the crowd outside. Authorities believe the shooting was targeted.
“These are cold blooded murderers that shot indiscriminately into a crowd and we will seek justice,” Miami-Dade Police Director Alfredo “Freddy” Ramirez III said on Twitter Sunday morning.
Two people died at the scene. As many as 25 people went to various hospitals for treatment.
No arrests were immediately announced.
