SPECIAL TO THE MIAMI NEW TIMES
Fifteen people were shot at an adult nightclub in Liberty City early Sunday morning, according to Miami police. The injured range in age from age 11 to 25.
"At 1 a.m. this morning we received multiple calls for several people who were shot at Northwest 7th Avenue and 64th Street," said Capt. Ignatius Carroll, a spokesman with Miami Fire Rescue. Carrol described the scene as "chaos."
Seven people, including two males and five females ages 12 to 17, were transported from The Spot lounge to Jackson Memorial Hospital's pediatric center, said Carroll. One male was in critical condition, as of early Sunday morning.
There was a party inside the club, police said, it is unclear what children and teenagers were doing inside when shots rang out.
"There were a lot of people in there," said a 53-year-old man, who declined to give his name, but was in a nearby lot when the shooting took place and watched from afar. "Groups of people just shooting at each other like they were in Iraq."
Anyone with information is asked to call Miami homicide at 305-603-6350 or CrimeStoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
