Shooting in Florida’s Hollywood Beach Broadwalk leaves 9 people wounded, including children, according to police

According to authorities, a suspect is still at large.

According to authorities, a fight between two groups resulted in a Memorial Day shooting that left nine people hurt, including children, along Florida’s Hollywood Beach Broadwalk.

According to Hollywood investigators Department Public Information Manager Deanna Bettineschi, one person of interest has been apprehended, and investigators are currently looking for a second suspect who is still at large.

According to Bettineschi, five people between the ages of 25 and 65, as well as four children between the ages of 1 and 17, including a baby between 15 and 18 months old, were shot. She noted that while one victim is undergoing surgery, the other patients are now stable.

The gunshot and the fact that “innocent bystanders” were hurt as a result of the confrontation between two groups “saddened and angered” Hollywood Beach Mayor Josh Levy.

“People come to enjoy a holiday weekend on the beach with their families, and to have people in complete reckless disregard of the safety of the public and to have an altercation with guns in the public setting with thousands of people around them is beyond reckless,” he said during a press conference.

While the investigation is ongoing, police are requesting that the neighborhood be avoided.
