Three gunmen opened fire on a crowd of people at a banquet hall, killing at least two and wounding about 25, according to reports.

Three people climbed out of a white vehicle "with assault rifles and handguns and started firing indiscriminately into the crowd", police director Alfredo Ramirez III told reporters.

The Miami Herald said 20 wounded victims were taken to local hospitals, and posted a photo of friends and relatives holding hands in prayer outside one trauma center.

Police believe this was a "targeted" shooting, and they're now searching for the SUV and the unidentified suspects.

"I am at the scene of another targeted and cowardly act of gun violence, where over 20 victims were shot and 2 have sadly died", Miami-Dade police director Alfredo Ramirez III said in a tweet on Sunday. "He said the guys came with ski masks and hoodies, and just started shooting up the crowd".

The venue was "hosting a scheduled event and several patrons were standing outside", Miami-Dade Police Department said in a statement.

Police said they're looking for a silver Nissan Maxima that may have been involved in that shooting.

It was the second mass shooting in the city in little more than 24 hours.

That followed recent mass shootings in Indiana, California, Colorado and Georgia.

Thousands of people are killed by guns in the USA every year.

In March previous year, the number of weekly federal background checks on gun buyers surpassed one million for the first time, the New York Times reported.

President Joe Biden condemned gun violence as an "epidemic" and an "international embarrassment" last month.

"All of this of course coming at the back of a huge spike in gun violence in this country", he added.
