At least nine people including a one-year-old baby, were wounded in a mass shooting at Florida’s Hollywood Beach on Memorial Day.

The incident took place at about 6.30pm ET in the area of the 1200 block of N Broadwalk, U.S., on Monday evening, May 29.

The wounded include four minors between the ages of 1 and 17.

Police spokesperson Deanna Bettineschi said one victim was in surgery late on Monday while the others were stable.

Hollywood Florida Police Department said that the incident started with an altercation between two groups, which escalated with shots being fired.

Police have detained one person who is suspected to be involved in the shooting but said they were searching for another, who is believed to be a Black man with dreadlocks and wearing a black short-sleeve shirt and camouflage shorts.

The gunfire sent beachgoers running for cover on a day when the shorefront was busier than usual due to the Memorial Day holiday.

CCTV footage from the moment when gunfire broke out shows dozens of terrified people running for their lives.
