Six of the nine people shot and injured in a shooting near Florida's Hollywood Beach Broadwalk on Monday remain at area hospitals in stable condition, while three others have been treated and discharged, police said Tuesday.
A 1-year-old is among the victims of the shooting, which police believe began as an altercation between two groups in a busy area of the beach Monday.
Of the nine victims, four are minors between the ages of 1 and 17, and five are adults between the ages of 25 and 65, according to a police update.
Hollywood police detained multiple people Monday, including two men they believe to be involved in the shooting who were arrested on weapons charges, Hollywood Police Department spokesperson Deanna Bettineschi said at a news conference Tuesday.
Police are asking for the community's help in identifying three additional people they believe were involved in the shooting.
Police said they recovered five handguns - two of which were stolen.
Hollywood Police has dozens of officers assigned to the beach on busy holiday weekends, which allowed for an immediate response, Hollywood Mayor Josh Levy told reporters Tuesday. "That's the reason why we were so quickly able to detain two people. Police were on hand within seconds or minutes."
