Two victims suffered multiple gunshot wounds after a shooting in Carol City Park in Miami Gardens Saturday, according to Miami Gardens Police.

The incident occurred around 5:30 p.m. near the 18500 block of northwest 32nd Avenue.

Police say that when units arrived they found two victims with multiple gunshot wounds.

One victim was airlifted to a local hospital and the other victim responded to a local hospital. Both victims are said to be in stable condition.

The investigation is ongoing and no information on the identities of the victims or possible suspect(s) was immediately available. 

A video posted to Only in Dade shows the immediate aftermath in Carol City Park.

One witness, who wished to remain anonymous for their protection, says tensions were building between two groups at a Miami Carol City High School reunion party taking place in the park when the gunfire erupted. 

“One of my friends was like, ‘Hey bro, be on watch out because them two groups, they’re going at it with each other.’ And ten minutes later all you hear is gunshots,” one witness said. 

Witnesses said people ran for cover when the gunfire started. 

“People were out here having food, we had liquor, performances, all that stuff. It was a good event. I mean, it’s a reunion,” another witness said. “It was organized. Right concept, wrong time.”

A time, the witness says, they’ve grown all too accustomed to.

“If y’all want to be honest, I had my gun on me just because. No, I wasn’t scared," the witness said. "Growing up in this area, this type of stuff happens. You feel me? It is what it is.”
