NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - Two people were rushed to the hospital after an overnight shooting in Northwest Miami-Dade.
The shooting happened at V’s Social Club in the Brownsville neighborhood, near Northwest 46th Street and 29th Avenue, around 2 a.m., Monday.
According to Miami-Dade Police, the gunmen walked up to the victims and opened fire.
One of the victim’s was struck in the lower part of their body, while the other victim was grazed by a bullet in the upper part of their body. Both were taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital in stable condition.
Two parked vehicles in the area were also struck by bullets.
One witness said a fight broke out shortly before bullets started flying. “I hope they hurry up and catch them,” he said, “because, you know, there’s too much of this going on – too much violence in this town now. They need to, you now, bring it to a halt.”
“You got people like that everywhere, you got young idiots everywhere,” said Lester Person. “Some people started a little fight and then it ended up escalating outside, and somebody got wild with a gun.”
Person is a regular at the club and said his friend’s car is one of those that got riddled with bullets. Luckily, she wasn’t inside at the time.
“I’m just happy to know that she wasn’t in the car and nothing happened to her,” Person said.
Michael Bain, the manager of an apartment complex across the street said the violence in the area is out of control. “It concerns all of us here, you know?” said Bain. “Bullets don’t have eyes, and they’re shooting, they’re shooting wild, so they can hit anybody.”
Police said the gunmen fled in an unknown direction.
Investigators spent a good part of the morning searching for evidence. They are hoping surveillance footage from the club may provide them with important details.
“I hope they hurry up and catch him because there’s too much of this going on, too much violence in this town now,” Person said. “They need to bring it to a halt. I pray that they do.”
