MIAMI GARDENS, FLA. (WSVN) - New details about a mass shooting outside a Miami Gardens restaurant are coming to light. One of the victims was an innocent bystander.

Twenty-five-year-old Carl Leon, according to his attorney Josiah Graham, was at the Licking restaurant to watch a music video that was being filmed.

Leon was shot three times and was one of 10 people facing significant injuries after the shooting.

His attorney said he was shot in the hand, a bullet grazed his head and he took a bullet to the stomach.

He is expected to be OK.

“We don’t know why so many people were congregating on the property, but these are things that obviously discovery will reveal. Only time will tell,” said Graham.

As police continue their investigation to try and figure out who was behind the shooting, attorneys are now getting involved to see if more security should have been there between the restaurant or the group filming the music video.

“He was there at the video shoot. While he was there, shots rang out, one bullet struck and almost hit him in the head. It literally grazed his head, so he’s lucky to be alive,” said Graham, an attorney. “Another bullet struck him in the abdomen and another bullet struck him in the hand, and completely shattered the bone in his thumb, so he’s dealing with it.”

The shooting remains under investigation.

“The first thing that went through my head was where’s my friend,” Leon told 7News on Monday. “I ain’t even realized I got shot until later on.”

Graham said he is seeking to find out who is responsible for the events that unfolded, particularly why wasn’t there adequate security.

Miami Gardens Police have indicated that the appropriate permit had not been pulled.

Leon was released and is home recovering.
