The Miami Herald is reporting that the 19-year-old female was the girlfriend of rapper NBA Youngboy who was involved in the incident. The witness, Anna Rodriguez, said that a fight broke out in front of the Trump Resort that escalated into gunfire. It’s unclear who shot first or why at this time.

Officials also confirmed that two of the three suspects are currently in custody.

Some eyewitnesses say the shooting was an attempted drive-by but several other witnesses are saying this was a road rage incident.

There was video captured of the scene from a nearby kosher restaurant and one Twitter user staying at Trump Hotel got a photo of the two cars involved. You can see the shattered glass in the back windshield that was damaged by gunfire.

The scene has been secured by police who continue to look for the third suspect in the shooting. It has been confirmed that a 19-year-old female transported to Aventura Hospital and one man died on the scene.

NBA Youngboy is in town to perform at the Rolling Loud music festival on Sunday night. Unconfirmed reports from TMZ say that a car pulled up and started shooting at NBA Youngboy’s car when the rapper’s bodyguard returned fire. Their sources also say that NBA Youngboy was staying at Trump Hotel. All police have confirmed is that one person was left dead at the shootout and one was taken to the hospital.
