Two people died and nearly 20 to 25 people were injured in a shooting outside a banquet hall in South Florida, police said. The gunfire took place early Sunday morning at the El Mula Banquet Hall in northwest Miami-Dade County, near Hialeah, police told news outlets.

The banquet hall had been rented out for a concert. Three people got out of an SUV and opened fire on the crowd outside, police director Alfredo Freddy Ramirez III said. Authorities believe the shooting was targeted. These are cold-blooded murderers that shot indiscriminately into a crowd and we will seek justice, Ramirez said in a tweet.

He tweeted, “I am at the scene of another targeted and cowardly act of gun violence, where over 20 victims were shot and 2 have sadly died. 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.”
