Orlando Police Chief Orlando Rolon is also saying the violence we’re seeing with guns being brought into situations like these has to stop.

Hazel Weston said she ran outside and saw at least 30 people together. “I hear three gunshot rounds,” she said.

Police said they believe the group was shooting a music video when something went wrong.

Rolon said investigators need to get their hands on the music video to find out who did this.

Rolon said guns being at the fight is another huge problem in itself and it needs to be addressed.
