Three Men Shot at Heathrow Lounge
Heathrow Lounge in Miami Beach is supposed to have a classy, vaguely British atmosphere, but it's located on Washington Avenue, so of course it still has the occasional Miami-style violence.
The club was hosting some sort of Father's Day bash (because nothing says "excellent dad" like hitting up the club. "Sorry, can't read you a bedtime story, Junior -- Daddy's getting ready to get crunk"), and shots rang out. One man was hit in the back, and two others were grazed. The man who was shot was transported to Jackson Memorial and is in stable condition. The two others were treated at the scene.
