Three people were killed and at least six were injured in what became known as the Miami shootings.
The incident took place in Kendall. The local police director said, "Violence with firearms has to stop, it's frustrating; every weekend, that's what happens."
According to local officials, three people were killed and at least six were injured in a shooting earlier this Sunday in southwestern Miami-Dade County, South Florida.
The perpetrators, not yet identified by the authorities, approached the parking lot of a commercial area in a couple of vehicles and began shooting at those who were leaving a place where a graduation party was taking place.
Miami-Dade Police Director Freddy Ramírez reported that one of the fatalities was a woman who was a Florida correctional officer who died at a nearby hospital.
The other two, Ramirez said, lost their lives as they drove into the wall of the Miami-Dade College campus in Kendall, near the site. Firearms were found inside the car.
Three women and three men were wounded by the gunfire and are being admitted to local hospitals.
The use of firearms has to be stopped. It's disappointing; Ramirez said during a press conference.
The incident comes just a week after another gun attack in Miami-Dade County left three dead and at least 20 injured. The shooting happened as several people were leaving a city music concert at the El Mula Banquet Hall in Helia, northwestern Miami-Dade, and heading for their cars.
Aides were shot dead by occupants of a white van, which police recovered from a canal a few days later. Still, authorities are investigating whether there was another vehicle from which it was also fired.
Police have not reported the incident or the alleged arrest of those responsible this Sunday, which is under investigation.

The operation, which will run for 12 weeks, led by Daniella Levine Cava, central leader of the Miami-Dade, said it was an increase in patrols that "included our most vulnerable moments in long hours of overtime." happens.
