Nearly a dozen people were shot at a restaurant in Miami Thursday night where rapper French Montana was shooting a music video at the time.
7 News Miami reported that Miami Gardens Police and Miami-Dade Fire Rescue units responded to the scene at The Licking soul food restaurant around 8 p.m. where there were reportedly a total of 10 victims.
“We’re still working [the scene]. Yeah, there’s multiple shots, there’s multiple cases,” said MGPD detective Diana Gorgue. “We’re still working. We can’t confirm any numbers at this moment, because everything is still fresh, and they’re still investigating.”
Videos posted on social media showed a few victims lying motionless on the ground, covered in blood.
“We had a total of 10 [victims],” a first responder said in radio transmissions, the news station said. “Four brought themselves to the hospital, and we’ve treated six transported.”
Witness Ced Mogul told the news station that “at least 13, 14, 15 gunshots” were rattled off in “very rapid” succession.
“I took off running, and I was looking back, but I was like, ‘You know what? Let me just duck first, and then people started asking me, you know, ‘Can you help me?’” said Mogul. “When I realized people were asking for help, there was nothing you could do about it when you got shot.”
