Jan. 4—On 星期日 night, 14 people were shot in two incidents separated by only two hours 和 four miles. All the victims, including four juveniles, are expected to survive. The shootings, though unrelated, had a number of striking similarities.

在这两种情况下,一个或多个射击者在一群人聚集并向人群喷枪后出现。大多数受害者是相对年轻的男性。在两次枪击事件中,共发射了140多发子弹 Miami and Northwest 迈阿密-Dade. No suspects have been named in either case. And if police believe they have a motive for either shooting, they’不公开分享。

Significantly, the brazen gunfire that trended upward during a tumultuous 2020 和 led to an increase in murders, bled into the New Year without pause. There was also no lack of disgust 和 anger from Miami-Dade County leaders.

“针对无辜年轻人的另一次无意义的暴力行为令我感到愤怒….”推特新安装 Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava。 “This type of gun violence is unacceptable in our community 和 as 市长, I am prioritizing changes to how we work with our youth to help prevent it.”

在同一个社交媒体平台上, Miami-Dade Police Director Alfredo “Freddy” Ramirez 称这是另一场悲惨的枪击事件。

“这种枪支暴力必须结束,” the director said.

第一次射击发生在 7 p.m. 在一个受欢迎的篮球场 西小河。像大多数星期天晚上一样,数十名青少年和年轻人聚集在 Little River Park 打球,观看比赛或只是混在一起。公园,在 10525 NW 24th Ave. 有一个中等的篮球场,有四个篮球场和四个相邻的小看台。它’它位于一个小型娱乐中心的后面,毗邻一个草地球场。

据警方称,两名男子未加警告就出现并开始开火“indiscriminately,”进入人群,然后跑了出去。至少发射了100发子弹。枪击停止后,八人受伤,均为男性。警方说,三名分别是16、17和18岁的青少年。另外五名受伤的年龄在21至27岁之间。七架被运送到地区医院,第八架被空运到 杰克逊纪念医院’s Ryder Trauma Center.

All eight, some with injuries more severe than others, are expected to survive, police said. On Monday morning, the park was eerily quiet with only one park employee in sight. The basketball court 和 the field were empty. A lone bicycle sat chained to a tree almost underneath one of the basketball hoops.

52岁的加布里埃拉·梅耶斯(Gabriella Mayers)直接住在篮球场对面,她说她的电子监控系统没有’t activate during the shooting, but she heard the ruckus from inside the home. When she ran outside, briefly, she saw people running in every direction. She said the park usually fills up 星期日 night.

在那住了四年的梅耶斯说,离该住宅区仅几步之遥的住宅区几乎没有问题。 Henry Reeves Elementary School. Within a few minutes of the 炮火, Mayer said, a police helicopter with a large searchlight was scouring the neighborhood for the shooters.

“所有的镜头我们都出来了。我们从里面听到他们的声音,” she said. “Kids in the park were running. We took a quick look 和 ran back inside.”

之后仅两个小时 Little River gunfire, Miami’s 一名执法人员称,阿拉帕塔(Allapattah)居民区充满枪声,留下6人被枪杀,其中几人是青少年。警方认为受害者是目标。枪手开枪至少40发。两名受害者在现场接受治疗,另外四名被转移到 杰克逊纪念医院. All are expected to survive.

“It’s almost a miracle,” said one officer. “They were shot in the arms 和 legs, mostly.”

迈阿密 警方说,他们在 西北25大道 and 37th Street just after 9 p.m., when ShotSpotter是一种可捕获枪声的电子设备,记录了数十次爆炸。警察说,当警察到达那里时,有六名男性受伤,其中大部分或全部是青少年。尚未被确认的射手早已消失。

十几岁的年轻人都是开车前来的,他们是来以多米尼加美食卡车购买三明治的,该卡车以其“ chimi三明治”闻名,在街边摊上流行的调味酱汉堡。 多明尼加共和国。显然,射手正在拖着十几岁的孩子拖尾车。

“他们是目标,”一位执法人士说。

星期日’s two incidents continued a troubling trend that saw shootings 和 murders soar in Miami-Dade in 2020, a year marked by an unrelenting pandemic 和 social unrest. Last year, after Miami and the rest of Miami-Dade experienced several years of historically low homicide numbers, an unusually high number of young teens 和 children shot 和 killed.

根据警方记录,整个圣诞节期间,全县有272起记录在案的凶杀案,比2019年增加了31起。警察和犯罪分析家将暴力犯罪的增加归因于多种因素,例如大流行限制了社区治安,并削减了警察与公众之间的积极互动。枪支销售也增加了,人们呆在家里感到沮丧,许多孩子没有回到学校。
