A witness named Ced Mogul who was among those watching the video shoot said someone in the crowd was robbed of his watch, keys and wallet before the shots rang out.
“[He asked to] call his mother and see if we can get spare car keys and make sure, you know, he’s OK, and then the gunshots went off,” Mogul said. “It was, like, at least 13, 14, 15 gunshots. It was very rapid, it sounded like an assault rifle.”
According to a law enforcement source, three different crime scenes are being investigated, although the other two are unknown. Miami Gardens Police Chief Delma Noel-Pratt told reporters they believe it’s an “isolated incident.”
No arrests have been made at this time, and this is a developing story.
