Just after midnight, a white Nissan Pathfinder pulled up to the El Mula Banquet Hall near Hialeah and three people “stepped out of the vehicle with assault rifles and handguns and started firing indiscriminately into the crowd,” Miami-Dade Police Department Director Alfredo Ramirez said.
“The result is 20 to 25 victims with gunshot injury wounds, and two deceased on the scene,” he added.
Five victims were taken to hospital, with two of them in critical condition according to a hospital spokesperson.
The venue had been rented out for a concert Saturday night, Ramirez said.
The Miami-Dade Police Department is asking anyone with information about the shooters or their whereabouts to contact authorities.
“These are cold-blooded murderers that shot indiscriminately into a crowd and we will seek justice,” Ramirez tweeted. “My deepest condolences to the family of the victims.”
