MIAMI-DADE, FLORIDA: A mother recalled the terrifying moment when her son called her and her husband, after he was injured when three gunmen opened fire at a rap concert in the early hours of Sunday morning, May 30. Angelica Green’s son was hit in his abdomen at the El Mula Banquet Hall in Northwest Miami-Dade. Nearly a hundred bullets were fired “indiscriminately” into the crowd by the unknown suspects, killing two and injuring 25.

Angelica Green told NBC 6 that she received the call from her 24-year-old son, whose name has not been released yet, in the middle of the night. “He called us frantic, telling us he had been shot, that it hurts, it hurts and that he loves us and wants us to know. My husband is like 'no stay with us, stay with us.' We hop in the car and we're talking to him to keep him alert.”

According to reports, along with Green’s son, who is stable after surgery, her nephew was also among those who were shot. She told CNN, “However, my nephew was shot four times” -- one bullet hit him in the abdomen area while the other three hit him in the leg. About her son, Green added, “He's not a statistic. He's a graduate from college last year. So he's educated. He was going out with his educated cousin to just celebrate the weekend, and they had not made it into the club as of yet. They said that some guys, three guys that they noticed... they just started shooting... for whatever reason, we don't know.”

Meanwhile, police are urging people's help in finding the culprits, who arrived in a white Nissan Pathfinder at the El Mula Banquet Hall near Hialeah. Three suspects “stepped out of the vehicle with assault rifles and handguns and started firing indiscriminately into the crowd,” Miami-Dade Police Department Director Alfredo Ramirez III said, “The result is 20 to 25 victims with gunshot injury wounds, and two deceased on the scene.” People with information can contact CrimeStoppers at (305) 471-TIPS (8477) or (866) 471-8477. 

Ramirez III also tweeted, “I am at the scene of another targeted and cowardly act of gun violence, where over 20 victims were shot and 2 have sadly died. These are cold blooded murderers that shot indiscriminately into a crowd and we will seek justice. My deepest condolences to the family of the victims.”

TV personality and Camping World CEO Marcus Lemonis shared, “I’m offering a $100,000 reward to help authorities in my hometown @MiamiDadePD arrest and convict the suspect/suspects .. pass this on ..” Miami Police Chief Art Acevedo tweeted, “All of us in the greater Miami-Dade area must stand together against acts of violence, and our criminal justice system must throw the book at prohibited persons unlawfully caught with firearms. Most if these cowardly misfits don’t fear death, they do fear long prison sentences.”

On CBS' ‘Face the Nation’ Sunday, May 30, Acevedo added: “We need to have universal background checks, we need to make burglarizing these licensed gun stores a federal crime with mandatory sentencing, and we need the federal government and both sides to address this issue because without legislation, without certainty as it relates to holding these criminals accountable, we're never going to get through this summer with much more death and destruction.”
