At least two people were killed and about 20 others injured in a shooting that took place Saturday night in Miami, at the exit of a music concert in this city in South Florida.
According to local authorities, it was one of the largest mass shootings in the region in recent memory.
The incident occurred after midnight at the exit of a rap concert held in a performance hall of a large suburban Miami mall, said Miami-Dade County Police Chief Alfredo Ramirez. .
Three unidentified assailants arrived in a white SUV, armed with assault rifles and handguns, and began firing “indiscriminately” at the crowd, the police chief said.
Two people were shot dead in the room and 20 to 25 others were shot and wounded. One of the injured is in critical condition, according to the same source.
“We believe this is a targeted act of gun violence,” Ramirez said. “It is a vile act of gun violence, a cowardly act,” he said.
