According to NBC Miami, the shooting took place around 12:30 a.m. at a banquet hall being rented for a release party for a local rap artist. Two people were killed, three remain in critical condition, and 17 others were shot and taken to different local hospitals.
On Monday, police released a new surveillance video that caught the suspects getting out of a white SUV with face masks carrying guns. That vehicle, a Nissan Pathfinder reported stolen on May 15, has since been recovered from a canal in Golden Gables.
Entrepreneur and TV host Marcus Lemonis offered $100.000 to help authorities find the shooters. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ Miami branch donated $25,000.

Alfredo “Freddy” Ramirez III, Director of the Miami-Dade Police Department, said the community must work together. “We must act now as the strong community we are! The small amount of bad actors do not represent #OurCounty…We will bring these cold-blooded murders to face justice!” he tweeted.
Anyone with information on the shooting is urged to contact Florida Crime Stoppers.
In the aftermath of such tragedy, we must remain mindful that arresting these killers is vital to prevent further violence.
