Miami cops find SUV used in mass shooting dumped in canal hours after release of vid showing suspects pull up and attack
THE vehicle used by three gunmen to kill two people and injure over 20 others in a shootout at a banquet hall on Sunday was found by police at bottom of a canal in Florida.
The Miami-Dade Police Department located a Nissan Pathfinder at the bottom of a canal in the city that was seen on surveillance video as the getaway car used by three gunmen to open fire on a banquet hall.
Police divers in Key Biscayne found the car, reported stolen on May 15, at the bottom of the canal, where residents told WPLG-TV the area is a known dumping ground
Just a few hours earlier, police made surveillance video of the shooting public, showing the gunmen exiting the vehicle before opening fire on the El Mula banquet hall.
The trio quickly ran back to the white SUV seconds later before making their getaway.
Authorities say the gunmen waited into the car for 20 to 40 minutes for concertgoers to gather in front of the banquet hall.
That's when the men "indiscriminately" opened fire. Several in the crowd who were armed likewise returned fire.
"We will do everything, everything we can and use every resource available to bring these people to justice," said Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava.
"We will leave no stone unturned, we will leave nothing behind to bring these shooters to justice."
Sunday's shooting left two men, both 26, dead, and injured 21 others.
No arrests have been made, with police adding 18 victims still remain hospitalized.
During a press conference, a grieving father, Clayton Dillard, shouted: "You all killed me kid, you must burn."
Dillard named his son, who also has the same name, as one of the victims on Monday.
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.
Two people died at the scene, police said. As many as 25 people went to various hospitals for treatment.
No arrests were immediately announced.
“This is a despicable act of gun violence, a cowardly act,” Ramirez told the Miami Herald.
“This type of gun violence has to stop. Every weekend it’s the same thing,” Ramirez said during an early morning news conference.
The injured were transported to various hospitals in the area, 12 of whom took themselves, according to authorities.
