MIAMI (AP) Police say a man and woman were killed and seven others were wounded following an early morning shooting in Miami's Liberty City neighborhood.

A Miami police news release says that 29-year-old Kevin Richardson and 26-year-old Nakeri Jackson were killed in the early Tuesday morning shooting.

Police responded to reports of multiple gunshots around 2:15 a.m. One victim was pronounced dead at the scene. The others injured were taken to a nearby trauma center, where the second victim died.

Miami City Manager Daniel Alfonso said city officials are going to try to reassess their strategy against crime in the violence-plagued area.

A news release from the Fraternal Order of Police says the shooting was a consequence of a lack of manpower and resources.
