Nine people were taken to hospital after a shooting during an “altercation between two groups” at Florida’s Hollywood Beach on Monday, May 29, a police spokeswoman told reporters.

“Right now, we do have one person of interest detained and … we’re also searching for an additional suspect,” the spokeswoman said.
