Miami-Dade Police have released footage from a deadly mass shooting that left two dead and over twenty injured at a club early Sunday morning.
The club’s audience had gathered to attend the release of a rap album when three masked men rolled up in a white vehicle and carried out an execution-style assault. The video footage can be viewed below:

“The shooting started shortly after midnight, Miami-Dade Police Director Alfredo ‘Freddy’ Ramirez said, when three shooters armed with handguns and semi-automatic rifles emerged from a white Nissan Pathfinder and fired dozens of bullets ‘indiscriminately’ into a crowd gathered for a rap concert outside the El Mula Banquet Hall near the Country Club of Miami,” the Miami Herald reported. “Ramirez told the Miami Herald that the shooters sat patiently in the vehicle waiting for the target — or targets — to leave the club before exiting the SUV and taking aim.”
“Some unidentified people in the crowd shot back at the suspects,” Ramirez added, which would explain why the suspects so quickly returned to the vehicle. It all appeared to have transpired in around 11 seconds. Ramirez requested that anyone with information on the shooting come forward, while mentioning a $100,000 reward for anyone with information leading to an arrest.
“Three people are still in critical condition, officials said Monday, and three have been released from the hospital, including a 17-year-old who was shot in the leg,” the New York Daily News reported on the incident. “More than 100 spent bullet casings were found at the scene, but police are working to determine how many people in the crowd fired back.”
“Investigators had not identified any victims, suspects or motives in the shooting by mid-Sunday afternoon,” the Daily News noted. “But Ramirez said during an early-morning press conference outside the Country Club Shopping Center, where the shooting took place, that the latest attack was ‘definitely not random’.”
“This type of gun violence has to stop,” Ramirez said. “Every weekend it is the same thing. This is targeted.”
One father, Clayton Dillard, wailed about losing his son to the mass shooters who he said “killed his kid.” It is yet another agonizing case of potential gang violence that often fails to make the headlines.
The mass shooting has not yet garnered widespread media coverage, even considering it is Memorial Day weekend. A number of political observers noted one simple explanation: The suspects don’t appear to fit the preferred left-wing media narrative:
Why aren’t Democrats condemning these 3 suspects in the Florida mass shooting?

The sarcastic remarks underscore that the media tends to ignore mass shooting reports when the suspects are black Americans. A review of the case files for mass shootings in the United States shows that about three-quarters of the alleged perpetrators are black suspects.
