via Google Maps
Residents of the Opera Tower, a 55-story bayfront condo, awoke Sunday morning to a scene straight out of Scarface: Blood pooled in an elevator and splattered around a lobby, three men seriously wounded, and police swarming a crime scene that stretched 30 floors.
This morning, police are still searching for a motive and a gunman as the three victims recover at Jackson Memorial.
The shooting began around 10:30 a.m. Sunday, rocking the building's lobby with multiple blasts.
Two victims were found bleeding in the lobby, while a third, looking for help, knocked on a door on the 30th floor, the Miami Herald reports.
