Rival Thugs Shoot it Out, Nine Wounded on Hollywood, Florida Boardwalk

Two people were arrested, and three more are at large, after a shooting that wounded nine people, including a 1-year-old, on the Hollywood Broadwalk Monday night.

Hollywood Police believe the shooting occurred after a dispute between two groups of people, said Deanna Bettineschi, a spokeswoman for the agency. So far, police have not shared details on what sparked the fight.

The Broadwalk, a beachfront spot for locals and tourists, was crowded with families enjoying Memorial Day weekend when gunfire broke out around 7 p.m.

Police detained two people after the shooting, the two were later determined they were not the shooters, but both were arrested on firearms charges.

Police recovered five firearms, two stolen, Bettineschi said, one from Texas, the other from Miami-Dade.

Detectives are still trying to identify three other people they believe were involved in the shooting.

“We are asking the community if you know whom the three pictured may be, please contact police,” Bettineschi said.

The nine injured people include five adults aged 25 to 65. The four wounded youth range in age from 1 to 17 years old, Bettineschi said.

California Governor Gavin Newsom went to Twitter, accusing Governor DeSantis of fault for the shooting due to the recently signed permitless carry legislation.

Twitter users, such as Jeremy Redfern, Press Secretary for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, quickly pointed out that the bill doesn’t go into effect until July 1st.

The injured were taken to Memorial Regional Hospital and Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital. Three have been treated and discharged. The other six remain in the hospital in stable condition.

Hollywood resident Cat Uden told the Sun Sentinel she was walking her dog Monday night when she heard a dozen or more sirens.

She wasn’t surprised when Uden saw news reports that there’d been a shooting on the increasingly crowded Broadwalk.

“I absolutely would avoid the central beach,” Uden said. “I notice it is getting worse. We’ve had a lot of fights on the Broadwalk, where all the bars are. Our beach is turning into Miami Beach. And we want to be the sleepy, quiet family beach. We don’t want to be like Miami Beach.”
