At a news conference on Monday, Miami Beach police say it apparently started with a disagreement between two parties and one man opened fire.
Miami Beach Police Chief Richard Clements says he’s making changes to provide better security on the beach.
“We will be looking for different staffing plans and staffing components for our patrol division and our police department to see if we can go ahead and enhance their performance in terms of being in all places at all times. It’s best that we can in order to deal with the expectations our residents have,” said Clements. “They deserve the right to be safe here and it’s our job to make that happen and quite frankly people like this walking around don’t make it safe. We need to do a better job and we’re going to do a better job.”
