Surveillance video shows gunmen approach Florida concert venue before shooting

Surveillance video released by cops Monday shows three suspected gunmen hop out of a white SUV, carrying rifles and a handgun, seconds before they opened fire at a crowd outside of a concert, killing two people and wounding 21 others.

The trio of gunmen, wearing masks and hoods, emerge from the front passenger-side door, as well as the back seat, and run toward the crowd, the footage shows.

Two of the shooters were carrying rifle-style guns, while the third had a handgun, according to the footage.

Seconds later, the three suspects scramble back to the waiting SUV, which then speeds off and turns the corner, disappearing from view of the surveillance camera, the footage shows.

The gunman targeted the crowd at the El Mula Banquet Hall in northwest Miami-Dade County as a people gathered for a rap concert at the venue soon after midnight on Sunday, police said.

Two people were killed and more than 20 were injured as the trio of shooters sprayed the crowd with bullets.

Miami-Dade Police Department Director Alfredo “Freddy” Ramirez III said the gunman appeared to fire randomly into the crowd — but they had targeted the venue.

“These are cold-blooded murderers that shot indiscriminately into a crowd and we will seek justice. My deepest condolences to the family of the victims,” he told CBS.

The chief of police of the Miami Police Department, Art Acevedo, added that the shooting is part of a “scourge” of gun violence across America.

“It’s just an indication of the problem we have with the scourge of gun violence in this country, that we have to do much more at the federal level to stop,” Acevedo said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
