Beyond the Bullets in Liberty City

In Miami’s Liberty City neighborhood, gang members are feuding over drug turf. On June 24, two men jumped out of a black SUV, spraying a crowd of people with bullets from high-powered rifles. Their intended target was not there, police said.

But seven innocent bystanders were injured, and two died. In the aftermath of the mass shooting, residents and community leaders are calling for a change.

This series looks at the neighborhood beyond the bullets.
