“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,” the director of the Miami-Dade police department Alfredo “Freddy” Ramirez III, tweeted.

On Saturday, at least seven people were injured when a gunman opened fire in a tourist neighborhood in Miami.

Gun violence in the US results in tens of thousands of deaths and injuries annually.

After a recent spate of high-profile mass shootings in the US, President Joe Biden had unveiled a series of moves last month that seeks to address a scourge of gun violence he deemed a “blemish on the nation.” (ANI)
