The scene of yesterday's shooting, a small house just across a canal from Sun Life Stadium.
The row of ranch houses sits along a canal in Miami Gardens, dwarfed by the structure just across the water: Sun Life Stadium, home to scores of Super Bowls. As neighbors gathered last night to watch this year's big game in New Orleans, tragedy struck the block.

A gunman blasted more than 50 rounds at the watch party, killing a father of two and wounding his dad and brother. Police are still searching for a suspect this morning.

The shooting happened at house near 23rd Court and SW 204th Street, NBC6 reports, a short block separated from Sun Life's mammoth parking lots by a drainage canal. 

Among those gathered to watch the Ravens and 49ers was 25-year-old Brandon Bryant, who has two young sons, and his father and brother, whom police haven't identified yet. 

Right around kickoff, at 6 p.m., someone sprayed the party with bullets. 

"It looks at this point like a drive by shooting," Miami Gardens Police Chief Ralph Suarez tells NBC6. "It looks like they were intended targets."

Bryant died at the scene; one of the other victims was in critical condition as of this morning, the station reports, while the other is stable.

Riptide left a message with a Miami Gardens spokesman seeking any news on the case this morning; we'll update this post when we hear back.

Mr. President Barack Obama: I write to you with a little petition today. I apologize that I bring my personal problem to your attention. But this matter is truly important to me. I am a 12 year old American boy, and my mom is my world. I live alone with my mom; we do not have too many family members here in US, and my mom work hard to provide for my life and my education. My mom is Cuban. She came to US on 1999. Mom found on august of 2000 that she was deported. Judge Puglise deported her on absence of the court. Mom try hard to get away from this final deportation order but no one can help her, That is the reason why I ask you for help, please MR President Obama, help my mom to get a green card, then we can be like a normal Cuban emigrant family, my mom have a clean criminal record, in 13 years never made a mistake, or do a wrong thing. She raise me with love and respect, she pay taxes and work as much as she can. I am an American citizen not because I born here, I am because my mom teaches me to do the right thing always; I was born in April of 2000 in NJ. I saw my mom suffer for too many years, and I am sure that she overpaid for whatever mistake that she made when she came to US. Mom live for 3 years without any legal documents, I was a baby at that time, but mom have to work as any other illegal emigrant because the lawyer that represent her did not work as suppose to do it. We have all documents and prove to demonstrate this matter. My mother try rely hard to get this emigration problem solve for too many years. She suffered because her only daughter was left behind back in Cuba, Mom do not see her for almost 15 years , My sister is a woman already and that broke my mom’s heart so bad. I meet my sister this New Year for first time and all my family that is in Cuba, and understand now why my mom cries so much all those years. The love that she misses is incredible. My mom did not found any legal way to get away from her deportation. Even when she never get deported for real, also she never can see again my sister or my grandma… Mom come to US on 1999 and today is 2013. If all this years that she live, work and suffer for the mistake that she made when she arrive to US on 1999 without doc, with a deportation over her shoulders, and without any opportunity to change this reality, if all the pain and emotional distress is not a good punishment already, she is considering that maybe the best solution is to get back to Cuba. Mom does not deserve more pain, more stress. Please Mr. President Obama; you are a powerful man, but more that that you are a great human being. Help me to make my mom happy. She never do anything wrong in her life. She wants to live here, learn, and be better every day. Also my mom’s grand grandmother is a Puerto Rican lady. She has the right to be an American Citizen from born. But I only ask you for the green card for my mom. She deserves to go to see her daughter and mom at least one more time. Mom does not want to live me alone, and I do not want to live without her. As an American Citizen I ask you from the bottom of my heart for help. Let’s help my mom to fix the emigration status. Or give her a special authorization to go to Cuba at least one time, to see our family and come back to live with me forever in US. Sincerely yours Stve Zayas

@Yumila Zayas Best way to avoid these problems is people not come to this country, especially illegally.  The USA is a country that no longer needs immigration.  I advise my friends in Latin America that the United States has a high crime rate, low and deteriorating moral standards,  sluggish economic growth (way lower than Chile, Peru, or Brazil), a hostile population,  a residual of genuine racism, and corrupt government; generally most of the countries in South America offer better than we do.  Don't come here!  It isn't worth it!
