All the men killed were shot by Hispanic officers; prompting concerns by community leaders that the shootings are racially charged.
“These shootings have us sitting on a time bomb,” City Commissioner Richard P. Dunn II said. “Everyone wonders: When is the next one going to happen? And the fact the chief is still here just makes Miami look like a banana republic.”
The families of the seven shooting victims will speak at a City Commission meeting on Thursday.
