Miami (US), June 6
Three persons were killed and at least six others injured following a shooting at a Florida graduation party, the latest in a string of such violence in the Miami area, the police said Sunday. One of those killed was a state corrections officer, Miami-Dade police Director Freddie Ramirez told news outlets.
He said the party at a strip mall lounge was ending when one or more vehicles “pulled up and began to fire into the crowd”. The identities of those killed and wounded were not immediately released on Sunday. The shooting happened about 2 am in the suburb of Kendall. Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava said she was “horrified” by this latest shooting. “We will not allow a small group of violent actors to terrorise our community, and violent offenders will face the full weight of the law,” she said in a statement Sunday. — AP
