Clayton Dillard III

In the early hours of Sunday, May 30 morning, three gunmen were seen heading toward a concert near the El Mula Banquet Hall with semi-automatic guns before allegedly killing two people and injuring 21 others. Dillard’s son and another man who was killed, Desmond Owens, were both 26-years-old.

According to multiple law enforcement sources, the other 21 victims who were wounded are between 17 and 32 years of age. The victims of the shooting were taken to various hospitals in the area. Following the Memorial Day weekend shooting in south Florida, police are on the lookout for the three suspects.

Clayton Dillard Sr, who was obviously angry during the news conference, yelled at politicians and police personnel.

Miami Shooting

The shooting stemmed from an ongoing rivalry between two different groups, Miami-Dade Homicide Bureau Maj Jorge Aguiar said on May 31. The intended target was believed to have been standing in front of the concert venue when the shooting began, he said.

He had been pleading for his son’s body to be removed from the crime scene, which had been covered by a tarp for about 18 hours as investigators investigated, according to WGLP. Dillard implored, “I need to hold him. I need to hold him! You killed the wrong kids!”

Dillard’s body remained in 90-degree heat for nearly 18 hours.

Clayton Dillard Sr

Clayton Dillard Sr, interrupted Miami-Dade Police Director Alfredo Ramirez as he was speaking about the El Mula Banquet Hall shooting, which left two men dead and 21 people injured. “You all killed my kid, you must burn,” an emotional Dillard shouted to politicians and police officers as he was escorted away.

“You killed a good kid.”

“And that’s the pain that you see. That is the pain that affects our community right there, right before you, that’s why together, all of us, we must work harder to bring justice to these families who are crying as you hear right now,” Ramirez said. “Know that the Miami-Dade Police Department will not stop, we will bring justice, our community is united.” Ramirez added the shooting at the club was “targeted” and was “definitely not random.”

Miami Shooting Suspects

Miami-Dade police have released CCTV footage of the suspects in the deadly shooting at El Mula banquet hall on May 30.

Further details on who the trio are were not available, as police are still attempting to identify them. In the latest incident, the gunmen reportedly fired “indiscriminately” into the crowd of attendees, who were at a release party for a local rap artist.

The trio is wanted for the deaths of two people following the violent shooting that left more than 20 injured. Officials on May 31 said the shooting resulted from an ongoing rivalry between two different groups and said the intended target most likely was outside the establishment at the time of the shooting. It is the second shooting in the county in just over a month. In April, a shooter gatecrashed a birthday party leading to the death of three-year-old Elijah La France.

We know that there are three suspects involved and they all appear to be men from the CCTV footage. The trio stole the white Nissan Pathfinder around May 15, the day it was reported stolen. After the shooting on May 30, they dumped the SUV in a canal in the area of 154th Street and Northwest 2nd Avenue.

The vehicle was discovered and pulled out on Monday, May 31.

The trio drove up to El Mula, left the vehicle running with the doors open and went inside to shoot attendees. Seconds later, they run back outside and exit the scene in the car. Since all three were wearing masks and hoods, it is unclear who exactly they are.

According to Ramirez III, the shooters targeted the club and it was not a random incident. It is unclear at this moment who the target was.
