    FL - Two dead, 7 injured in Liberty City shooting, 23 Jan 2009

    Another shooting not making much news, it happened Friday night. Obviously there is no connection between the Saturday night Portland shooting and this one, but I find it odd he chose to shoot into a crowd just like the FL perp did. Maybe he saw this on the news and decided this was how he wanted to end his life.

    With nine people wounded, two fatally, police called it one of the largest mass shootings in Miami history.

    But the weekend blood bath in Liberty City -- triggered by a mystery gunman who unleashed a hail of bullets on a street dice game -- underscored the same themes woven through much of Miami's urban violence, big or small.

    Good Lord, you'd think they public would want to help..

    "But on Saturday, they had no firm suspect description, little cooperation from witnesses and no tips from the public.''I was taken aback by the fact that so many people got shot and not one person has come forward to say anything,'' said Miami homicide Lt. John Buhrmaster."

    Honestly, in that neighborhood, I'm not surprised no one wants to talk. People are scared and also there is the "no snitching" mentality. Call anonymously!!

    I was in Miami when this happened. It's gang related. The perp was still at large on Sunday - guess he still is.

    "MIAMI — The Rev. Al Sharpton will join the families of two teens who were killed in a Miami shooting last week to launch a national drive against the “stop snitching” culture."

    June 2014 - another shooting:

    A mass shooting just outside the Liberty Square housing complex left two people dead, a teen girl clinging to life, and six others seriously wounded. Police had not arrested the shooters as of Tuesday night...

    The Liberty Square neighborhood where Tuesday’s shooting took place and which runs roughly from Northwest 12th to 15th avenues and 62nd to 67th streets, has been plagued by gun violence over the years. Tuesday’s tragedy was at least the 13th shooting since 2009...

    Tuesday’s incident was also eerily similar to a January 2009 double murder only nine blocks away. That day, gunmen pulled up to a group of men playing dominoes and opened fire with automatic weapons. Two men died and seven were severely injured. Among the dead were two teenagers.

    Though a man was arrested for the shooting, the case was dropped by state prosecutors after witnesses failed to come forward, and those who did began to contradict each other.

    Somehow, it makes it so much worse that the victims were just innocently playing dominos
