Death toll rises to three from mass shooting at Miami-area concert

A third victim has died from her injuries sustained in a mass shooting at a Miami-area rap concert early Sunday, a new report said.

Shankquia Lechelle Peterson, 32, died Thursday after being shot in the hail of bullets fired by three gunmen into a crowd outside of El Mula Banquet Hall in northwest Miami-Dade County, the Miami Herald reported.

Twenty other people were wounded in the gunfire.

Police are still searching for the suspects.

On Monday, authorities released surveillance footage showing three shooters hop out of a white SUV, carrying rifles and a handgun before opening fire.

Miami-Dade Police Department Director Alfredo “Freddy” Ramirez III said the gunmen appeared to fire randomly into the crowd — but they had targeted the venue.

“These are cold-blooded murderers that shot indiscriminately into a crowd and we will seek justice. My deepest condolences to the family of the victims,” he told CBS.
