HIALEAH, Fla. (AP) – Two people died and an estimated 20 to 25 people were injured in a shooting outside a banquet hall in south Florida, police said.

The shooting broke out early Sunday at El Mula Banquet Hall in northwest Miami-Dade County near Hialeah, police told news agencies.

The banquet hall had been rented out for a concert. Three people got out of an SUV and opened fire on the crowd outside, said Police Director Alfredo “Freddy” Ramirez III. Authorities believe the shooting was targeted.

“These are cold-blooded killers who shot indiscriminately in a crowd and we will seek justice,” Ramirez said in one Tweet.

I am at the location of another targeted and cowardly act of gun violence, in which over 20 victims were shot and 2 unfortunately died. These are cold blooded killers who shot indiscriminately into a crowd and we will seek justice. My deepest condolences to the victims’ families.
