MIAMI (AP) -- Authorities say 12 people were wounded and two shot dead when gunmen opened fire on mourners outside a Miami funeral home.
Miami-Dade Police say it happened Friday as services were taking place at the Funeraria Latina Emanuel.
One person died at the scene and another after being taken to a nearby hospital. The injured include a 5-year-old girl. Authorities said Saturday she is in stable condition.
Funeral home photographer Jaques Leonet says services for Marvin Andre were just finishing when a car drove by and opened fire onto a crowd of people outside. People screamed and fled for cover. Several were left bleeding on the ground.
Leonet said the scene was "like a war zone."
The names of the two deceased adults were not immediately released.
