HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – An extremely scary scene unfolded on Monday along Hollywood Beach after gunfire erupted along the crowded Broadwalk.

Police said an altercation between two groups led to shots being fired shortly before 7 p.m. on the Hollywood Broadwalk between Johnson Street and Garfield Street.

Nine people were injured, including four juveniles between the ages of 1 and 17.

Police have since arrested two men, Morgan Deslouches and Keshawn Paul Stewart, on firearms charges. Police, however, confirmed that they were not the people who discharged the firearms that night.

The 911 calls from the mass shooting were released on Tuesday.

In that audio, concerned callers are heard trying to alert the authorities and have them respond as quickly as possible, with several describing the victims who were struck by gunfire.
