Gunmen fired a barrage of bullets at a crowd of mourners who were gathered Friday night at a North Miami-area funeral home, injuring 12 people and killing two, according to Miami-Dade police..
The shots came from a passing car. The gunmen remained on the loose early Saturday.
Witnesses said one of the two killed was shot in the chest.
The funeral was for Marvin Andre, 22, of North Miami, killed in an earlier shooting, according to witnesses. More than 100 people were gathered outside.
“I was on my way out of the chapel when I heard the shots,“ said A.D. Lenoir, the pastor who officiated at the service. “I told people to look for cover. It was chaos.”
Lenoir, 29, said people were screaming, crying and yelling.
“It hurts me that after such a moving and stirring message, this happens,” Lenoir said, “a shooting at a shooting-victim’s funeral.”
