In response to a violent weekend of fatal shootings, the City of Miami Beach has declared a state of emergency and imposed a curfew beginning at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, March 19, 2023, and lasting until 6 a.m. on Monday, March 20, 2023.

The decision was prompted by two separate incidents, one on Friday night in South Beach that left one person dead and another injured, and another fatal shooting that occurred early Sunday morning.

The City Manager plans to implement additional curfew restrictions from Thursday, March 23, 2023, through Monday, March 27, 2023, to ensure public safety. A special commission meeting is scheduled for Monday at 4 p.m. to further discuss potential restrictions going forward.
