Miami Beach leaders to discuss fate of Urban Beach Week after shootings - Miami Beach - MiamiHerald.com
A YouTube video that captured the shooting — which led one activist to call South Beach a “warzone” — showed officers approaching the stalled car with guns drawn before unleashing a hail of gunfire into the vehicle. Police did not discover a weapon, but said they are investigating unconfirmed reports that shots came from the car and that passengers were in the vehicle and bailed out.
Four bystanders were shot, and police chief Carlos Noriega acknowledged that they may have been shot by officers.
Police Confiscate Cell Phone Cameras After Shooting Unarmed Man On Miami Beach | Pixiq
Minutes after Miami Beach police fired an endless barrage of bullets into an unarmed man over the weekend, a police officer ran up to a witness who had been recording the incident on his cell phone camera and snatched it from him.
Narces Benoit gave CBS12 the following account:
"He didn't say nothing. He just snatched me by my head and threw me on the ground and stepped on my back, threw it on the floor, stepped on it and was cussing me out the whole time," said Benoit.
Benoit said the officer confiscated cell phone cameras from other witnesses as well.
