Two people were killed and at least 20 people injured in a shooting outside a banquet hall near Hialeah, Fla., early on Sunday, officials said.

The police said three people arrived in a white Nissan Pathfinder at the El Mula lounge, in northwest Miami-Dade County, where an event was being hosted.

They exited the vehicle, began shooting into a crowd of people outside the venue and then fled, the police said.

“Several groups that were in the parking lot also armed themselves and opened fire toward the initial shooters,” Maj. Jorge Aguiar of the Miami-Dade Police Department said at a news conference on Monday.

Two people were pronounced dead at the scene, eight were taken to hospitals and 12 victims took themselves to hospitals, the police said on Sunday. Three victims were in critical condition as of Monday morning, Major Aguiar said. Three people had been released from the hospitals, including a 17-year-old boy who was shot in the leg. The victims ranged in age from 17 to 32, according to the police.

Major Aguiar said the shooting was a result of a continuing rivalry between two groups. He said the intended target was most likely in front of the venue when the shooting took place.

“These are cold blooded murderers that shot indiscriminately into a crowd and we will seek justice,” Alfredo Ramirez III, director of the Miami-Dade police, said on Twitter. “My deepest condolences to the family of the victims.”

Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida said on Twitter that he was mourning the deaths and praying for the victims. “We are working with local authorities to bring justice to the perpetrators,” he said. “Justice needs to be swift & severe!”

Angelica Green told the television station NBC6 that her son called her early on Sunday to tell her that he had been shot and that he loved her.

“We were talking to him, trying to keep him alert,” Ms. Green told the TV station, adding that she and her husband immediately left for the hospital.

Referring to a separate shooting in the Wynwood area of Miami on Friday, Daniella Levine Cava, the mayor of Miami-Dade County, said “this is unacceptable” at the news conference.

“We will leave no stone unturned,” she said. “We will leave nothing behind to bring these shooters to justice.”

Chief Art Acevedo of the Miami Police Department on Twitter highlighted both shootings in the Miami area over the weekend.

“If we don’t fully mobilize as a society against it, it will get worse before it gets better,” he said.
