Miami police chief calls for 'serious prison time' for illegal gun possession after latest mass shooting
After a second mass shooting in the Miami-area left two dead and more than 20 injured, Miami Police Chief Art Acevedo argued Sunday that rising gun violence must be met with serious prison time for those prohibited from possessing firearms – while “firearms belong in the hands of law-abiding Americans.”"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, Acevedo tweeted. He said most of these "cowardly misfits" don’t fear death, but do fear long prison sentences.
The shooting took place near the Prime 112 steakhouse and left two people injured—including one critically.
According to a police report, obtained by the Miami Herald, two men were attempting to get into their car at approximately 11:20 pm on Monday in front of the eatery when they got into a fight with "a famous musical entourage."
One victim recounted to police that Awute then pulled out his gun, shooting one of the men in the right calf. According to the police report, the victim was able to identify Awute as the shooter.
In Urena's case, police received a report that an individual driving a black Chrysler 300 was attempting to flee the scene of the shooting.
Police pulled the vehicle over and were told by Urena, who was the only person in the car, that as his vehicle was blocking the valet he got in to move it.
