Miami: Authorities say 12 people were wounded
and two shot dead when gunmen opened fire on mourners outside
a Miami funeral home.

Miami-Dade Police say it happened yesterday as services
were taking place at the Funeraria Latina Emanuel.

One person died at the scene and another after being taken
to a nearby hospital. The wounded include a 5-year-old girl.

Authorities said today she is in stable condition.

Funeral home photographer Jaques Leonet says services for
Marvin Andre were just finishing when a car drove by and
opened fire onto a crowd of people outside. People screamed
and fled for cover. Several were left bleeding on the ground.

Leonet said the scene was "like a war zone."
The names of the two deceased adults were not immediately
