NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - Police have recovered the white SUV that, they said, was used as the getaway vehicle in the mass shooting at a banquet hall in Northwest Miami-Dade.

7News cameras captured the Nissan Pathfinder as it was pulled from a canal in the area of Northwest 154th Street and Second Avenue in North Miami-Dade, Monday afternoon.

The recovery of the vehicle happened just hours after surveillance video of the shooting was released, which captured three subjects as they got out of the SUV near the El Mula Banquet Hall, just after midnight, Sunday.

Police said the gunmen used assault rifles and handguns to shoot at a crowd that had attended a concert at the banquet hall, then returned to their vehicle 10 seconds later and fled the scene.

Investigators said two people were killed and 21 others were injured.

Clayton Dillard III and Desmond Owens, both 26, were identified as the two victims who did not survive.

The victims ranged from ages 17 to 32.

Kadedra Thomas was shot three times in the back. A bullet grazed her leg.

Her father, Rodney Thomas, shared pictures of her before she was released from the hospital.

“I’m angry, I’m hurt, I’m relieved,” he said. “I’m disappointed with the Black community, with our young people nowadays, how they just don’t value life.”

Police said the Pathfinder was reported stolen on May 15.
