A total of 15 people were shot at a Miami club late Saturday evening, including victims aging from 11 to 17-years-old.
When Miami police and rescue crews arrived at a club called The Spot around 1 a.m., they said they found chaos among the large throng of adults and teenagers gathered there. Rescuers found wounded people inside and outside the club, some too hurt to flee, Miami Fire Rescue Capt. Ignatius Carroll said.He told The Associated Press that the first emergency crews arriving on the scene were warned to use caution “because there was still active shooting taking place in the area.”
One man was found unconscious at the scene and five girls ages 11 to 17-years-old suffered from gun shot wounds. Police are still puzzled over what happened and why there were so many young children at the nightclub.
“We’re reaching out to the community now to find out if anyone knows anything or saw anything,” Burden said.
Many young people were at the site; at least three of the wounded were transferred to a pediatric unit, Carroll said. “What was very surprising to the responders was that these were kids that were out at 1 o’clock in the morning in a club and this type of violence took place where a bunch of kids were gathering,” he said. “It’s very disturbing to see that.”
Officials are currently interviewing the victims who are at multiple hospitals in the area. Police say that the victims are very cooperative.
So far, no arrests have been reported. Police are still searching for suspects.
