HALLANDALE BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - A string of violence across Miami-Dade and Broward has communities on edge as another shooting that occurred in Hallandale Beach left one person injured and another dead.

Several detectives and police officers were at the scene at the Beachwalk Hotel Sunday night, a luxury hotel and resort located at 2602 E. Hallandale Beach Blvd., as they searched the third floor of the parking garage where the shots were fired.

Video shows blood stains on the ground of the parking garage.

According to officials, the shooter approached a man and a woman who were walking to their cars. The woman did not survive. The man is still in critical condition.

“I hoped I was wrong,” Emily Beke said.

Beke was visiting and staying at the hotel. She said she heard four to five gunshots.

“I heard a few loud pops, just after midnight,” Beke said. “I’m Canadian, you know, so that’s really far from our reality. I never heard gunshots before today, first day in Florida.”

Police said the shooter knew the victims and that it was some sort of domestic incident.

It remains unclear what the shooter’s exact relationship was to the victims, but that suspect is still out there.

Authorities have since cleared the scene, but this was only one of many gruesome acts that have occurred in South Florida over the weekend.

The news shocked other guests at the hotel, many of whom didn’t know there was a double shooting just feet away from where they were sleeping.

“Wow, I can’t believe that actually happened here,” John said.

“In a tourist area like this, it’s kind of expected because so many people come around here. However, it should definitely not happen,” Mike said.
