On Monday, May 29, 2023, nine people were injured in a shooting along the Hollywood Beach boardwalk in Florida. The shooting happened at around 7:30 p.m. EDT, and sent people running for cover along the crowded beach.
The victims of the shooting included six adults and three children. The children ranged in age from 1 to 17 years old. All of the victims were taken to local hospitals, and all are expected to survive.
Police have not released any information about the suspects in the shooting, but they are asking for the public’s help in identifying them. Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the Hollywood Police Department at (954) 967-4400.
The shooting is the latest in a string of gun violence incidents in Florida. In February, a gunman opened fire at a high school in Parkland, Florida, killing 17 people. And in March, a gunman opened fire at a nightclub in Orlando, Florida, killing 49 people and injuring 53 others.
The shootings have sparked a debate about gun control in the United States. President Donald Trump has called for stricter gun control laws, but he has also said that he is “a big fan of the Second Amendment.”
The shooting in Hollywood Beach is a reminder of the dangers of gun violence in the United States. It is also a reminder of the need for stricter gun control laws.
Here are some of the reactions to the shooting:
President Donald Trump tweeted that he was “praying for the victims of the shooting in Hollywood Beach.”
Florida Governor Rick Scott tweeted that he was “heartbroken” by the shooting and that his thoughts were with the victims and their families.
The National Rifle Association (NRA) tweeted that it was “saddened” by the shooting and that it was “committed to working with law enforcement to find the perpetrators.”
