MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – Divers found the white Nissan Pathfinder that was involved in a mass shooting on Sunday morning was submerged in a canal in Miami-Dade County.

Detectives said on Monday that they had found the vehicle was in a canal in the area of 154th Street and Northwest Second Avenue. It had been reported stolen on May 15, police said.

Surveillance video shows a trio jumped out of the stolen vehicle to turn a rapper’s celebration early Sunday morning into a bloody rampage — killing two men and injuring 21 people.

The organizers of the event at El Mula Banquet Hall, at 7630 NW 186 St., advertised it as a party for Courtney Paul Wilson, 24, better known as rapper ABMG Spitta, and the release of his new album “Round of Applause: Book of Spitta, Vol. 1.”

The shooting victims were 17 to 32 years old. Five of them were women ages 20, 23, 26, and 31. The majority of them were men.

A grieving father identified one of the two 26-year-old men killed during the shooting as Clayton Dillard.
