    What to Know

    • MDPD Det. Alvaro Zabaleta confirmed that one person was killed in the shooting, but officials have not identified that victim.

    A fight inside a Miami strip club ended in a shooting outside that left a security guard dead and another hospitalized early Thursday, authorities said.

    Miami-Dade Police said the shooting took place outside of the Booby Trap located at 3615 Northwest South River Drive in Miami around 6:30 a.m.

    According to police, there was a fight inside the club and security guards escorted those involved outside. A short time later, a car traveled west toward the club stopped, and several subjects opened fire and hit two security guards.

    MDPD Det. Alvaro Zabaleta confirmed that one person was killed in the shooting. He was later identified as 31-year-old Jose D. Otero.

    "It was brazen what they did, just to come out and open fire that way, having total disregard of who they may strike," Zabaleta said.

    The second security guard responded to Jackson Memorial Hospital with a gunshot wound to his upper extremity, police said.

    Investigators have not released any details on who they may be looking for. Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade Police.
