Wilson Wong, NBC News, May 31, 2021

Authorities are offering $130,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for a mass shooting in Miami that left at least two people dead and more than 20 others injured early Sunday.

“This is unacceptable,” Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava told reporters Monday as the nation observed Memorial Day. {snip}

“We will do everything,” she said, “everything we can, and use every resource available to bring these people to justice. We will leave no stone unturned. We will leave nothing behind to bring these shooters to justice.”

Early Sunday, three people got out of an SUV and “began shooting indiscriminately into the crowd” outside a “scheduled event” at an establishment on 186th Street, in the Hialeah area west of Miami Gardens, Miami-Dade police said in a statement.

The venue was a banquet hall that had been rented out for a concert, NBC Miami reported.

New security video released by authorities Monday shows three people, who appear to be carrying guns, getting out of a white SUV and walking out of the frame. The people can be seen running back to the vehicle shortly afterward before driving away.

Investigators said Monday that they had found and recovered the vehicle submerged in a canal in Golden Glades. The Nissan Pathfinder was reported stolen May 15.

Authorities are offering a $30,000 reward for information leading to the shooters’ arrests, with an additional $100,000 for their convictions. {snip}

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue found two people dead and took eight others to hospitals, police said. At least 12 other victims went to the hospitals on their own. Three people were in critical condition.
