Three people were killed and at least five others injured in a drive-by shooting in southern Florida early Sunday – just a week after a mass shooting in the same area.
One or two cars pulled up to a strip mall and opened fire on a crowd of people leaving a graduation party, Miami-Dade police said.
Two of the dead were passengers in a car that crashed into a wall nearby as it fled the scene, police said. A gun was found in the car, cops said.
Correction Officer Tyleisha Taylor died from gunshot wounds, police said. She had worked for the Florida Department of Correction (FDC) at the Dade Correctional Institution since 2020, NBC 6 reported.
“We are devastated to learn a member of our FDC family, Officer Taylor, was killed in a fatal shooting,” department spokesman Mark Inch reportedly said.
“Our prayers are with her family as they navigate this unimaginable loss.”
