Miami - Authorities say 12 people were wounded and two shot dead when gunmen opened fire on mourners outside a Miami funeral home.

Miami-Dade Police say it happened on Friday as services were taking place at the Funeraria Latina Emanuel.

One person died at the scene and another after being taken to a nearby hospital. The wounded include a 5-year-old girl. Authorities said on Saturday she is in stable condition.

Funeral home photographer Jaques Leonet says services for Marvin Andre were just finishing when a car drove by and opened fire onto a crowd of people outside. People screamed and fled for cover. Several were left bleeding on the ground.

Leonet said the scene was "like a war zone."

The names of the two deceased adults were not immediately released.
