    Miami Officials: Celebrate 2015 Without Gunfire

    Miami officials are once again asking residents not to fine celebratory gunfire for New Year's. (Published Tuesday, Dec. 30, 2014)

    Miami officials are once again asking the public not to fire weapons to celebrate New Year's.

    Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado, Police Chief Manuel Orosa, Miami-Dade Commissioner Audrey Edmonson and other elected officials are coming together to promote the "One Bullet Kills the Party" campaign.

    They are scheduled to hold a news conference Tuesday to discuss the campaign.

    Celebratory gunfire has led to innocent people being struck by bullets during holidays in past years.

    Five-year-old Rickia Isaac was killed in 1997 by a falling bullet on New Year’s in South Florida. On the 4th of July in 2012, two people were hit after someone fired into the air at a Coral Gables fireworks show.

    Two years ago, a man was hit with a bullet in what was believed to be celebratory gunfire on New Year's in Miami.
