Police continue to search for "two people they believe were involved in the shooting. The department released the surveillance video alongside still images of the individuals and asked that anyone who recognizes them contact police."
"Several children were among those injured. Police spokesperson Deanna Bettineschi said four children between the ages of 1 and 17 were hit, along with five adults between 25 and 65," CBS News adds.
Governor DeSantis, who is hosting a major event in Iowa Tuesday, has not said a word on his Twitter accounts, has not posted a statement on his government website, and it does not appear he has spoken to reporters about the mass shooting.
The governor's official press secretary did, however, take time to attack California's Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom, who noted on social media that DeSantis recently signed a permit less carry bill into law, which will further expand the number of guns on the streets.
"California Gov. Gavin Newsom was fact-checked by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' spokesman after he blamed the Memorial Day shooting in Hollywood, Florida, on laws DeSantis signed that are not yet in effect," Fox News reported. "Newsom reacted to reports of the shooting on social media, blaming gun violence on a bill DeSantis signed in April that eliminates the requirement for an individual to obtain a permit to carry a concealed firearm."
DeSantis' government spokesperson Jeremy Redfern, on what he says is his "personal" Twitter account, tweeted: "Hi Gavin, How does a law that doesn’t take effect until July 1st change this outcome?"
But Governor Newsom's remarks are entirely factual.
"DeSantis signed a permit-less carry bill in April that removes requirements for:
Until our leaders have the courage to stop bowing down to the NRA and enact common sense gun safety this kind of senseless violence will continue," he wrote via Twitter.
Meanwhile, many on social media are blasting DeSantis for ignoring the mass shooting.
"9 people were shot in Hollywood, Florida and it sure as hell wasn’t by Drag Queens," one social media user wrote, referring to DeSantis' attacks on drag queens and the the LGBTQ community, and making clear drag queens aren't a danger.
"Ron DeSantis had laws changed so he could stay Governor AND run for POTUS," another social media user said, accurately. "MEANWHILE he ignores what is happening in Florida. He hasn't said ONE WORD about this mass shooting (a 1 year old got shot) in HIS STATE this weekend. Ron, I think you should leave."
In response to a news report on the shooting, another user simply said, "Thank you Ron DeSantis."
"To all the Ron DeSantis supporters out there. 9 people were just shot and not one word from your precious governor," wrote another on Twitter.
