The row of ranch houses sits along a canal in Miami Gardens, dwarfed by the structure just across the water: Sun Life Stadium, home to scores of Super Bowls. As neighbors gathered last night to watch this year's big game in New Orleans, tragedy struck the block.

A gunman blasted more than 50 rounds at the watch party, killing a father of two and wounding his dad and brother. Police are still searching for a suspect this morning.
 

The shooting happened at house near 23rd Court and SW 204th Street, NBC6 reports, a short block separated from Sun Life's mammoth parking lots by a drainage canal. 

Among those gathered to watch the Ravens and 49ers was 25-year-old Brandon Bryant, who has two young sons, and his father and brother, whom police haven't identified yet. 

Right around kickoff, at 6 p.m., someone sprayed the party with bullets. 

"It looks at this point like a drive by shooting," Miami Gardens Police Chief Ralph Suarez tells NBC6. "It looks like they were intended targets."

Bryant died at the scene; one of the other victims was in critical condition as of this morning, the station reports, while the other is stable.

Riptide left a message with a Miami Gardens spokesman seeking any news on the case this morning; we'll update this post when we hear back.
