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.

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.
