Shocking surveillance video captures the second deadly shooting at a popular party destination over the weekend, the execution-style killing that sent a mob of bolted Miami spring breakers on Sunday. I’m here.
Horrifying footage shows a crowd of vacationers walking under umbrellas around 3:30 a.m. when gunmen opened fire.
Surprised tourists can be seen covering their heads as they flee from bullets.
The victim is seen falling to the ground as the gunman continues firing at him.
The shooter then runs away from the bloody scene.
Miami Beach police later identified the suspect as Dontavious Leonard Polk, a 24-year-old from Fort Lauderdale.
Polk was in custody Sunday night on first-degree murder charges.
Two days earlier, gunshots rang out, killing one man and injuring another, prompting crowds from restaurants and clubs to flee into the crowded streets in terror.
Police found four guns at the scene and detained one person, but did not provide other details.
The riots prompted the city to enact a curfew on Sunday night, barring South Beach tourists and partygoers from going out from 11:59 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday.
A photo was taken of Miami Beach police officers enforcing a strict curfew on Sunday.
Under the rules, people have to leave the store by midnight. Hotels can stay open late to serve guests, but restaurants can only deliver after midnight.
Some rule-breakers were arrested by police in South Beach on Sunday night.
Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber said on Sunday that there were few options for enforcing a curfew because the number of guns was so high and the city was overcrowded.
“We don’t ask for spring break in our city,” Gelber said.
“Our city doesn’t need spring break. It’s too rowdy, too chaotic, and too hard to police.”
Authorities may impose another curfew from Thursday through March 27. The restrictions are primarily focused on South Beach, a popular tourist destination that loves spring break.
