Clearwater police spokeswoman Joelle Castelli says the Monday evening shootings were between a group in a temporary parking garage near the Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort and Spa and a group in the street.

Clearwater police announced the following arrests: 

One of the victims was shot in the groin and the other in the hand. Neither of the victims was a random bystander, Castelli said

Castelli said the shootings were not random, possibly gang releated and that officers were getting a handle on the commotion as quickly as possible. “We have a lot of police presence on the beach, especially on a holiday weekend,” she said.

“The safety of the beach residents is of the utmost importance to us,” Castelli said. “I would bring my family here tomorrow.”

Authorities temporarily closed the two bridges onto Clearwater Beach (Memorial Causeway and the Sand Key Bridge) creatingtraffic back-ups until the suspect could all be apprehended.
