Desmond Owens, 26, Clayton Dillard III, 26, and Shaniqua Peterson, 32, were killed and nearly two dozen others were hurt in the May 30th shooting which happened outside the hall at 7630 NW 186 Street where a crowd had gathered for a rap show.
Miami-Dade police said the shooting was a coordinated attack that involved two vehicles and at least five gunmen.
Surveillance video shows three masked gunmen getting out of a white Nissan Pathfinder before opening fire on the crowd. They are then seen running back to the SUV and speeding away. The stolen SUV was found later in a canal.
During questioning, Buckner admitted to being the person in the front passenger seat of the SUV and being one of the three people from the vehicle who fired into the crowd, according to his arrest report. He reportedly told police he couldn’t remember how many shots he fired.

He told Circuit Court Judge Mindy Glazer that he had hired an attorney and did not have a job. Glazer said he was a “danger to the community.”
Rico Clayton Dillard, the father of Clayton Dillard III, said they are devastated by their loss.
“My son dear, he was the best son in my life,” said Rico Clayton Dillard.
Rodney Thomas, whose daughter was shot 3 times and survived, told CBS4’s Peter D’Oench “I am gratified by the arrest.” He did not want to talk on camera today but has said he wanted justice for his daughter and the other victims.
The first person arrested in connection to the investigation was 22-year-old Davonte Barnes, who also faces three counts of first-degree murder and 20 counts of attempted murder. If convicted, he faces the death penalty.
Miami-Dade police said Barnes confessed to meeting with the suspects before the shooting and being a look out while it took place.
Police don’t have as much information about the second vehicle, described as a black car with at least two people inside.
“This is a despicable act of gun violence. A cowardly act,” said Miami-Dade Police Director Freddy Ramirez said at the time.
Police said they believed the mass shooting was targeted and likely connected to an ongoing rivalry between two groups.MORE NEWS: Fort Lauderdale Police Investigating School Threats
