FL - Two killed, 10 injured in shooting at Overtown party, Miami, 9 July 2009Twelve people were shot shortly after midnight Monday when gunfire erupted at a birthday party in Overtown.
Several people are now in the hospital, some barely clinging to life, as Miami police search for three shooters responsible for the mayhem that occurred at 12:45 a.m. outside a home in the 500 block of Northwest Fifth Street.
Some at the block party were gunned down as they ran. Others were shot as they sipped their drinks and listened to rap music. Most were teenagers.
Four people were taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center in critical condition and six others were taken to Jackson, according to Miami Fire Rescue spokesman Ignatius Carroll. Two people remained in critical condition Monday morning, police reported.
It's so sad to hear about entirely needless shootings and deaths because of gangs. I hope there are not even more killed for retaliation.

I lived in Miami for almost 10 years and Overtown is definitely one of the worst neighborhoods there (in a close tie with Liberty City). But, I am still surprised at this level of violence.
I am happy that there are people like Stephanie working to help make Miami a better community! Stephanie is a friend of mine, whom I originally met at grad. school at UM.
Sorry for the O/T, but I am proud of all that Stephanie and others are doing
Eventually the good will outweigh the bad, right???
