Police don’t yet know the identities of the shooters or why they targeted the club.
Shortly after midnight Sunday, a white Nissan Pathfinder pulled up to the El Mula Banquet Hall near Hialeah, Ramirez said.
That’s when three people “stepped out of the vehicle with assault rifles and handguns and started firing indiscriminately into the crowd,” Ramirez said.
“The result is 20 to 25 victims with gunshot injury wounds, and two deceased on the scene.”
The Miami-Dade Police Department is asking anyone with information about the shooters or their whereabouts to contact authorities.
Shooting leaves two in critical condition
The wounded were taken to various hospitals in the area.
Five victims were taken to Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood, Florida. Two of them are in critical condition, according to hospital spokesperson Kerting Baldwin.
Ramirez said Sunday the shooting at the club was “targeted.”
“This is definitely not random,” he said.
