At least nine people, including a one-year-old child and two other minors, were injured in a Memorial Day shooting on a packed Florida boardwalk.
Authorities say a dispute between two groups ended in gunfire at around 6.45pm Monday in the area of the 1200 block of North Boardwalk in Hollywood Beach, north of Miami. One suspect has been detained, while another is still at large.
An online video showed the moment gunfire erupted on the popular hotspot. The crowd frantically scattered for cover and away from danger when gunshots started to ring out near the Margaritaville resort.
Other videos from the scene showed emergency responders treating several victims as they lay along the sand.
Nine people were transported to area hospitals in the aftermath. Their conditions remain unclear, with at least one person scheduled to undergo surgery Monday night.
The victims range in age from one to 65.
It could have been avoided with gun control measures. Like those in Chicago. Those laws work so well that their weekends are much more peaceful than in Florida.
