    A rampage shooting at a Miami nightclub Sunday at 1am, has left 15 people wounded, including an 11 year old child.

    'A shooting sent terrified patrons scrambling from a Miami nightclub early Sunday and left 15 people wounded, including an 11-year-old-child. One person is reported to be in critical condition and five girls between 11 and 17 are amongst the victims - none of whom are over age 25.'

    'When Miami police and rescue crews arrived at a club called The Spot around 1 a.m., they said they found chaos among the large throng of adults and teenagers gathered there. Rescuers found wounded people inside and outside the club, some too hurt to flee, Miami Fire Rescue Capt. Ignatius Carroll said'

    'A hundred' rounds are reported to have been fired, by different guns. Investigators want to know why so many very young people were there in the early hours of the morning. No arrests reported yet.

    Wow! So many questions! This is so scary in and of itself, but I find myself even more scared for the possibilities of why such a large number of young girls (and boys?) were at a club so early in the morning. :/

    I saw this yesterday, but still haven't seen any explanation for all of the children there. Crazy.

    Has anyone done any research to find out whether minors are allowed in nightclubs in Florida (and Miami in particular)?

    'It's not clear whether the nightclub catered to teenagers. No public safety officials have explained why so many youths 16 and younger were inside a nightclub after the midnight Miami-Dade County curfew.
    Authorities said the shooting happened about 1 a.m. at The Spot nightclub at NW 64th Street and Seventh Avenue.'

    We know nothing, basically? I'd be concerned by this, if I lived in Miami. An 11-year-old, in a nightclub at 1am?

    Apparently, there's a curfew?

    per this article (probably updated since you posted):

    The club had recently begun to allow teen parties on the weekends

    I was thinking some family rented it our for a party.

    Not that I think it's appropriate, but it's better than I had feared, my biggest worry was that there was human trafficking going on.

    ...at 1:00am in a nightclub! That's insane. I wonder if the parents were present.
