Miami-Dade police release surveillance video of armed suspects in banquet hall mass shooting

Three gun-armed men jumped seconds before firing a shot in a Miami area banquet hall from an SUV that left two dead and over 20 injured over the holiday weekend, according to a surveillance video released by authorities on Monday .

The short video shows a Nissan Pathfinder pulling up in front of the El Mula banquet hall in the suburb of Hialeah in the early hours of Sunday morning. At that time there was a rap concert in the hall.

Three masked people get out with weapons and run towards the building.

Seconds later they get back in and the SUV sped away. Authorities said several people were shot while standing outside the hall when the armed men opened fire at random. Several armed people returned fire, the authorities said on Monday.

“We will do everything, do everything in our power, and use every available resource to bring these people to justice. We will leave no stone unturned, we will leave nothing behind to bring these shooters to justice, ”said Daniella Levine Cava, Mayor of Miami-Dade County at a press conference.

Two men, both 26, were killed and 21 were injured. The Miami-Dade Police Department said 18 victims, including five women, will remain in the hospital. No arrests were made.

Three other victims – a 31-year-old woman and two men, ages 21 and 25 – remain in critical condition. Three people have been discharged from hospitals, including a 17-year-old who was shot in the leg.

“We have intelligence that this is due to an ongoing rivalry between two different groups,” said Major Jorge Aguilar of the Miami-Dade Police Department. “We know our intended target was most likely before the establishment when the shooting took place.”

A man identified by Fox subsidiary WSVN-TV as Clayton Dillard, whose son was killed in the shooting, cut short the press conference when he stepped in front of the podium.

“You killed my child,” he said. “You have to burn! You all took something that was given to me. Whoever did that will burn! “

He was escorted by officers when Alfredo Ramirez, Miami-Dade Police Director, spoke.

Authorities said feuds like the one that culminated in Sunday’s shootings often escalated on social media as groups exchanged insults back and forth.

“The real engine is what they say in their rap songs or post in videos, which are trigger words that provoke retaliation,” Ramirez said.

The shootout took place as the Miami area has been grappling with a string of gunfights in the past few days. The authorities said 30 people were shot within three days.
