MIAMI, FLORIDA:  During the filming of a French Montana music video on Thursday, January 5, night, ten people were shot outside a restaurant in Miami Gardens. The investigation into the mass shooting is ongoing. A soul food restaurant called The Licking's parking lot was the scene of the shooting at 8 o'clock in the evening.

French Montana was filming a rap video when the gunfire stared, witnesses told WSVN. The shooting's aftermath was purportedly captured on film, which was then posted on social media and showed a number of victims lying on the bloody street while first responders and onlookers sought to help, as reported by The New York Post.

Just before 8 o'clock, Miami Gardens police responded to the shooting outside The Licking restaurant, where they discovered numerous victims, according to WSVN. Although sources told the broadcaster there were more than 10, the police have not confirmed how many people were hurt. Four of the victims were transported to nearby hospitals by paramedics and Miami-Dade Fire Rescue, with one of them being in critical condition. At 10 pm local time, Miami Gardens Police detective Diana Gorgue said: "We’re still working [the scene]. Yeah, there’s multiple shots, there’s multiple cases." She added, "We can’t confirm any numbers at this moment, because everything is still fresh, and they’re still investigating," Daily Star reported.

Witness Ced Mogul told WSVN that he left the eatery to watch the rapper record the video. At some point, a spectator in the audience was robbed of his watch and wallet, which aggravated the situation, according to Mogul. He said,  "It was like at least 13, 14, 15 gunshots. It was very rapid, it sounded like an assault rifle. I took off running, and I was looking back, but I was like, ‘You know what? Let me just duck first, and then people started asking me, you know, ‘Can you help me?’ When I realized people were asking for help, there was nothing you could do about it when you got shot," as reported by Fox News.

Another eyewitness to the shooting informed WFOR-TV that it took place as the nearby restaurant was being used for the filming of rapper French Montana's music video. Before witnessing individuals running wildly, the witness recalled hearing 10 to 15 gunshots. The current situation of the remaining victims is unknown. Police are still on the scene but have not offered any information regarding a potential suspect or suspects.
