Two dead, up to 25 wounded in shooting at concert in South Florida

Two people were killed and up to 25 people were injured in a shooting in South Florida. The incident happened at a concert in northwest Miami-Dade County.

A white Nissan Pathfinder drove up to the El Mula Banquet Hall in the Country Club Shopping Center in Hialeah between 12 a.m. and 1 a.m., according to Miami-Dade police director Alfredo Ramirez III. Three assailants reportedly got out of the SUV and indiscriminately opened fire with rifles and handguns at the crowd outside the banquet hall, which had been rented out for a concert.

Two people were shot dead at the scene, and between 20-25 people were wounded. The gunshot victims were transported to local hospitals, and one person is in critical condition.

Alex Lanires, who works in the shopping center, said the crowd there is “rowdy” and there have been fights “every other weekend.”

“I guess it was a matter of time before something really bad happened, and I guess today was that time,” Lanires told WPLG-TV reporter Parker Branton.

Authorities believe the shooting was targeted.

“I am at the scene of another targeted and cowardly act of gun violence, where over 20 victims were shot and 2 have sadly died,” Ramirez tweeted on Sunday. “These are cold blooded murderers that shot indiscriminately into a crowd and we will seek justice. My deepest condolences to the family of the victims.”

No arrests were immediately announced.

The police are asking for the public’s help in bringing the shooters to justice. Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477.

“It is very difficult to stop a small amount of individuals who want to go out there and commit murder, and it takes all of us to stop this,” Ramirez told the Miami Herald. “We really have to put the work in this summer to keep our children and community safe.”

2nd Amendment Florida gun-owner Florida shooting Gun collector shoots intruders home invasion Intelwars Three intruders shot Wesley chapel shooting

Three armed men attempt home invasion on a gun collector, but the homeowner is ready

According to police, three armed men attempted a home invasion on a self-described gun enthusiast, and only one of the three made it out alive.

Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco related what the police believed happened in a video statement on Friday. The incident occurred at a home in Wesley Chapel, Florida, that morning.

Nocco said that a homeowner was playing video games by himself when he heard someone break the glass towards the back of his house.

The homeowner grabbed a firearm and accosted three intruders in a narrow hallway of his home. He told police that the first intruder was wearing a black mask and dark clothing, and pointing a gun in his direction.

According to Nocco, the homeowner then shot the first intruder, who fell to the ground. He then saw a second intruder wearing a mask, also with a gun. The homeowner shot the second suspect, who also fell to the ground.

One of the suspects did manage to get a round fired off, but did not hit the homeowner.

The homeowner then saw a third intruder, fired at him, and saw him fall on top of the other bodies. According to the homeowner, his gun jammed, allowing the third intruder to run away while the homeowner went to get another gun.

The third suspect was captured by a neighbor of the homeowner, who called him and said that he was holding the suspect at gunpoint.

The third suspect was identified by police as Jeremiah Tramel. Nocco said that Tramel will be charged two counts of second degree homicide of his accomplices, and also with home invasion robbery.

“He is accountable for the deaths because it was during the commission of a felony that he was involved in that those two people died,” Nocco explained.

Here’s a local news report about the incident:

The homeowner said that he might have been targeted because he posted photographs of his gun collection on social media.

“This victim exercised their Second Amendment right. The Second Amendment allows you to protect yourself by carrying and bearing arms. In his home he protected himself,” Nocco added.

He also said that the two dead suspects had extensive “extremely violent” criminal histories.
