MIAMI — Fifteen people, mostly teenagers, were shot early Sunday morning at a Miami nightclub, Miami police reported.

Police spokeswoman Frederica Burden said the shooting happened about 1 a.m. The victims range in age from 11 to 25, and one person was critically injured, she said.

“At this point, we are not sure if we have one shooter or multiple shooters,” she said.

WPLG said the shooting happened at The Spot nightclub at Northwest 64th Street at Seventh Avenue. A large party was being held when shooting broke out.

Witnesses told police they heard about 100 gunshots, WPLG reported.

With so many wounded people, emergency responders had to treat some victims on the sidewalk. The wounded were taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital.

“It turned out to be a mass casualty incident,” said Capt. Ignatius Carroll of Miami Fire Rescue.

Burden didn’t know a motive.

    Knee Grows, where’s Al Sharptounge and Jesse Jerkson on this? Oh wait, my bad, it’s black on black crime, nothing here to see, no racial tension to stir up, just move on as there is no money to be made here.

    I want to know who the heck lets their children go to a nightclub and at that hour no less! I cannot imagine my kids out at that hour and at a club. I am guessing no charges for child endangerment or abuse will come of this. I also assume that this will not be all over the news for months and months either.
