Fifteen People Shot During Party at Miami Club

Carli Teproff, Miami Herald, September 29, 2014

The party in the new club continued into the wee hours Sunday morning. Strawberry daiquiris flowed. Music from DJ Bay Bay pulsed. Teens were chilling and dancing.

Then came the gunfire.

Witnesses said they heard dozens of rounds, maybe 100, rip through a storefront Miami nightclub called The Spot, wedged between a furniture store and a smoke shop.

When the gunfire stopped, 15 young people were wounded, bloodied and dazed, the youngest of them 11 years old, the oldest 25.

One 15-year-old boy was in critical but stable condition Sunday. Most of the other wounds were not life-threatening, and some of the injured were treated and released.

Police say they, too, don’t know exactly what triggered the violence. At least one witness said it appeared that two groups of people were shooting at each other.

Owners or managers of The Spot, 6410 NW Seventh Ave.–which bills itself as as a lounge, Caribbean restaurant and bar–did not answer the door Sunday to speak about the party or the shootings.

Perhaps the most sobering part of the latest outbreak of club carnage is the tender ages of some of the victims. Witnesses and people who had been in the club say the party was geared toward the teen crowd.

To one 28-year-old woman who was across the street when the shooting started, it seemed as if the shooters were trading fire, with 100 or so club-goers caught in the middle. The club’s front door was open at the time, and the woman said she could see the flashes of gunfire inside.

    Entirely possible that the youngest victim (11 years old) was one of the three (or more) biological children of the oldest victim (25 years old)

    • Shadow

      If the history of young black girls in this country is any indication,it won’t be too much longer before that 11 year old starts having kids of her own,as well.

      • As early as black girls reach menarche, it is entirely possible she already has one, courtesy of her mother’s boyfriend.

        • DNA Explains It All

          Or her own Daddy/Baby daddy.
          Edit add:
          Nope not possible, you’re right her own father would not have remained long enough to screw her.

      • DonReynolds

        No reason to zero in on the black girls, Pancho. They pick them pretty green in the Hispanic community too. Older male siblings often think they have the right to their kid sister and the parents do not seem to mind at all. How do I know? I have seen it myself, in Austin and the Texas Hill Country.

        • Periapsis

          Then that can only mean one thing, rampant inbreeding with all the negative behavioral and genetic consequences. With regards to the article, no responsible parent will allow an 11-year old, or even a 17-year old to be on the streets at one a.m. It’s clear this mass shooting has GANGS written all over it, who else would fire into a crowd of what amounts to children? This is why if I had kids of my own, they would not be associating with non-white children and most certainly would not be out on the streets in the wee hours of the morning. Is it any wonder why so many children do poorly in school?

        • Katherine McChesney

          I once knew a Latina who told me her father and brothers raped her multiple times to ‘get her ready for marriage’.

          • Shadow

            Was her father and brothers ever arrested for their crimes?

          • Oil Can Harry

            The Latina most likely never brought charges. Had she done so most of her sleazoid family and relatives would turn on her for “snitchin'”.

            Hispanic family values, y’all.

          • DonReynolds

            Even Child Protective Services looks the other way when they find out the family is hispanic. Incest and sex with unrelated underaged minors is extremely commonplace. Cops know that too.

          • Katherine McChesney

            No. It was an accepted ‘rite of passage’ for a young Latina, I suppose. She never reported it to the authorities.

          • Germanicus

            Some cultures just have a bridal shower, others…

          • DonReynolds

            I lived for a while in an apartment complex in Austin….a rather nice one…..and it was unavoidable. Mexicans consider kid sisters to be part of their entitlement.
            Sometimes the girls would try to run away and occasionally they would resist, but I never saw any actually escape from having sex with older brothers.
            The first few times you see it, you are rightly shocked…..but after a while it just becomes part of the hispanic landscape.

          • ElGringo

            It’s what they’re talking about when they refer to “Hispanic family values”.

          • Periapsis

            Sick is all I can say, and all the more reason to kill them if they sexually attack our children. A bullet to the back of the head is much too kind for a pedophile, but fortunately there are far more poetically just ways of executing child rapists.

        • DNA Explains It All

          This is true. Girl I grew up with the biggest crush on (Mexican and really pretty) was raped by her older brother and a friend. I didn’t learn this until after her and I had hung out a bit in my early 20’s. Sad.

    • bilderbuster

      It’s quite possible that one of the shooters could be a half brother from a different mother to either of them.

  • AmericanCitizen

    Whoever did the shooting learned marksmanship from Ray Charles.

    • David Jones

      Or Stevie Wonder.

      • DNA Explains It All

        Or Micheal Jackson for that matter

  • And how does a teen-oriented nightclub get a liquor license?

    Answer: In Bell Curve City, liquor laws exist only in theory.

    • TruthBeTold

      Someone probably protested that it was racist to deny them a liquor license so they were given one.

      If true, during the course of the investigation it will be said they got the license because white folk don’t care about black folk.

    • 1stworlder

      Hey with things like this we might not have to pay for them all the way to adulthood

      • DNA Explains It All

        Correct with on caveat, pay for the all the way THROUGH adulthood.

  • Why the hell was an 11 year-old at a bar after midnight?

    • Who Me?

      That was my question, exactly!

    • revilo evola

      Why? Because they are black. That would be my guess.

    • Shadow

      Probably getting her “freak on” with the enthusiastic encouragement of her 20 year old baby mama.

      • Paleoconn

        Bingo. Bars are like daycares for these people.

    • TruthBeTold

      It’s a black thing?

      • Shadow

        Fo’shizzle.

      The liquor stores were closed.

      • mobilebay

        That would be La’civious, wouldn’t it?

    • Oil Can Harry

      Since this is a black club the 11 year old wasn’t at the bar, he was probably behind it!

  • Magician

    The article indicates multiple times that most of the people at the party were teens and they had guns with them.

    • Germanicus

      Time for tougher teen-control laws to keep gun ownership safe.

  • Tim

    I am grateful that I at least got to witness the Miami Beach of Arthur Godfrey, Jackie Gleason and Wolfie Cohen. But it makes me all the sadder to see the era of J-Lo and Fifty -Cent…

    • Anglo

      Yes, Arthur Godfrey and Jackie Gleason. It was a whole different world back then.

    • bilderbuster

      J-Lo, PDiddy and Madonna on South Beach?
      That’s sooooooooo Nineties!
      Wolfie’s was still open until 2001 and the Rascal House closed in 08 sniff! sniff!
      The good news is Joe’s Stone Crab is still cracking the crabs and I have my father’s vintage 1950″s era Arthur Godfrey Ukulele hanging on our rec room wall.

      • Tim

        Wolfie`s 21st and Collins. My last visit was in `96.

        • bilderbuster

          That’s around the time the Black tourists were boycotting racist Miami because the Cubans snubbed Mandela because he visited his comrade Castro.
          Miami Beach had a record tourist season that year and never wanted the boycott to end.
          Alas!
          Now there’s Urban Beach.

    • DonReynolds

      Miami Beach was a Jewish invention, so they would have a nice place to stay when they visited Miami. The hotels at the time were “restricted”.
      Something else they never mention in the history books.

      Gosh, there’s someone as old as me on here!

  • This happened in a part of town known as Little Haiti. No further comment needed.

      In my experience, there’s nothing worse in this whole world than a Haitian.
      Except a Somalian.

    Strawberry Daiquiris flowed…at 2 AM….15 people were wounded,the youngest of them 11 years old…

    What are 11 year olds doing in a nightclub that serves liquor at 2 AM?

    I thought anyone 12 and under was kicked out of bars by 1 AM.

    Looks like a GREAT neighborhood!!

      Hello,

      These establishments are within a few feet of a school zone? And the one on the right is within the school zone.

      Is that odd, or is it me?

      Bill Moore

      • Germanicus

        That zoning is necessary because we white people perpetrate environmental crimes forcing minorities into substandard housing and bad city-planning choices. This according the (Y) E . P. A. , come on now I say it, Y. E. P. A. , get yo’ self down; have a good time…hang out with all of the boyz…

    • “End School Zone” just before the hole in the wall. Somehow I doubt much education is taking place even within the school zone.

    • Germanicus

      Oh come on, was that “End School Zone” sign photoshopped in? That’s just too precious. Where one school zone ends, an end zone school begins.

      • If it was photoshopped, the job was done very well, as the signpost casts a slender shadow on the sidewalk, stretching out at approximately the 3:00 direction.

          I’ve seen a few of those in Detroit, using Google Earth street view.

          (You think I’m going to drive through there you’re nuts.)

  • Tarczan

    No race was mentioned, but we all know what it was. This would be unthinkable in any white area.

  • bubo

    Miami is basically a central or South American city. You have the super rich, a small middle class and then a huge underclass of black and brown. It’s probably the nastiest, third world-esqe place we have in the U.S..

    • Who Me?

      Excellent synopsis. Miami properties on the ocean front resemble an American version of the French Riviera. Hundreds of yard west you have little Haiti.

      Rock sure was prescient with that line,especially when you realize he said that back in 1996 during his stand-up comedy routine on HBO called “Bring the Pain”.

      That segment you cite is readily available on YouTube,Vimeo,and Worldstarhiphop,among other sites.

    • Alexandra1973

      Thing of it is, though, “n****rs” greatly outnumber “black people.”

      A black person that behaves in a civil manner is truly a minority.

  • DonReynolds

    Why were underaged children (11, 15, and other ages) in the Club at any time?
    I have never lived anywhere that allowed such young children into night spots.
    Better still, why were they in the Club in the “wee hours of the morning”?
    Were they working? We they accompanied by their parents?
    Somehow, I do not think so.

    • Maybe they were brought to the club by their Johns.

    • 1stworlder

      You need to hang out with Congressman Menendez he goes to clubs where you can rent underage girls.

      It’s a variant of Midnight Basketball without the risk of them being on the streets where they might get hit by a car. “My Antwon was such a good boy…thus ain’t happenin.”

  • Katherine McChesney

    Blacks and Strawberry Daiquiris.

    • Shadow

      I guess they ran out of Kool-Aid.

      That’s probably why they all started shooting at each other.

      • AFlaVet

        Or Purple dank? Trayvon’s favorite that fried his liver too. I’d offer them Drano or a Jim Jones special.

  • HJ11

    These were all Blacks who were shot? I don’t care. They are not my kind. I do not interfere in the fates of people who not my people. I am as indifferent to non-Whites shooting non-Whites as I am to snails killing other snails.

  • Were the shooters, Klansmen, Skinheads or Nazis?
    Has the Reverend Jackson been notified of the multiple civil rights violations?

    • Shadow

      The shooters were obviously Klansmen,sir (they’re thick as fleas on a dogs backside down in Miami).Everybody knows that the Klan loves to hang out in all-black nightclubs (especially in neighborhoods called Little Haiti),and ogle all the black women with the big,fat bootays.

  • MBlanc46

    The police “don’t know” what triggered the violence. Don’t know or won’t say? What big city cop doesn’t know that any sizable gathering of blacks is a magnet for blacks?

    • Shadow

      Apparently,the investigation is being conducted by the Keystone Cops.

      • MBlanc46

        They seem to show up whenever black-on-white violence occurs.

        • Who Me?

          I have a feeling that this was black-on-black violence, in other words, no humans involved.

  • Bill Moore

    Hello,

    A hundred rounds at close range, and no one was killed. These shootouts take place in Pittsburgh PA several times a year (between rival Africans and between the police and Africans). The bystanders are usually the ones that are hit. The police usually make short work of the Africans shooting at them, I’ve had to drive down a street with dead Africans lying all over the place, picking our way around the foul African bodies. Rival Africans shooting at each other seldom hit what they are aiming at.

    I was in the US Army with these African “sharpshooters”. Bullets flying everywhere but where they’re aimed.

    When the civil war between the Africans, the Mexicans, and the Caucasians starts up, the Caucasians and the Mexicans should be able to make short work of the Africans. Good riddance.

    Keep your shooting skills sharp.

    Thank you for letting me rant,
    Bill Moore

  • Bill Moore

    Hello,

    This is off-topic, but the latest news on the liberal media is that there are very few rapes on the all-African campuses.

    The talking heads are puzzled, but I’m not.

    The reason for the lack of rapes on all-African campuses is that there are no Caucasian women there to rape.

    There, I’ve solved the puzzle for them.

    Thank me,
    Bill Moore

    • You can’t rape the willing.

      • Bill Moore

        Hello ms_anthro,

        And the Africans can’t rape the Caucasian women who are not there to rape.

        Separation is working quite well at the African campuses.

      Or hardly anyone reports them.

  • IKUredux

    Wow. Just Wow. To think that the height of perfidy used to be Eddie Haskell.

  • I guess that’s what police have to let them do, shoot it out…. but,
    how long can that go on before the city is sued for police not interceding
    and becoming trustworthy with the community as Obama suggest ?

    • The supermarkets in my area do not have bars on the windows. Funny, that.

      • Alexandra1973

        The *banks* in my area seldom have any glass at the teller counter. A few banks have some glass, but not very high up; the one I go to has none.

        In the meantime, I remember going to Detroit-area banks and they had glass up to the ceiling. Back in the 90s.

    • Who Me?

      The street sure is clean for a “Little Haiti” type area

        Caucasians are probably hired by the city to keep it clean.
