“With so much firepower and so much violence that we saw at the scene, this could have been a much more terrible event,” Roundtree said at a news conference on Monday.

Detectives are hypothesizing the shooting began because of an earlier confrontation between members of the two gangs in Florida. Roundtree declined to provide further details.
