MIAMI Fla June 30 2011 – Two people were killed and 12 others injured in a shooting early Thursday at a Miami bar.
Authorities said that a gunman and one other patron were fatally shot and 12 patrons injured when an argument broke out between two men at the South Rock Lodge Bar and Grill at 3:15 a.m.
A security guard approached the suspected gunman, and they exchanged fire. Both the gunman and the man he was originally arguing with were shot, police said. The gunman was taken to a local hospital, where he died a short time later, and the other man died at the scene.
Of the 12 others injured, at least 10 were taken to local hospitals, with one listed as a trauma alert.
Authorities from several state agencies, including sheriff’s officials and fire crews, responded to the scene and were investigating Thursday.
“Detectives have a lot of work to do to put the puzzle pieces together and find out what happened,” Dani Moschella, spokeswoman for Broward Sheriff’s Office, told the Miami Herald.
