Fifteen People Shot at Liberty City Nightclub The Spot

Fifteen people were shot at an adult nightclub in Liberty City early Sunday morning, according to Miami police. The injured range in age from age 11 to 25.

"At 1 a.m. this morning we received multiple calls for several people who were shot at Northwest Seventh Ave. and 64th Street," said Capt. Ignatius Carroll, a spokesman with Miami Fire Rescue. Carrol described the scene as "chaos."

Seven people, including two males and five females ages 12 to 17, were transported from The Spot lounge to Jackson Memorial Hospital's pediatric center, said Carroll. One male was in critical condition, as of early Sunday morning.

There was a party inside the club, police said, it is unclear what children and teenagers were doing inside when shots rang out.
