Miami Officials: Celebrate 2015 Without Gunfire

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.
