Some witnesses have claimed that the shooting was the result of a road rage incident, while others have said three suspects opened fire on the victims during a drive-by.
But according to Local 10 News, the shooting started around 1.30pm when two groups of rappers got into an argument outside the resort and exchanged gunfire.
Sunny Isles Beach Police said the suspects were armed with an AK-47 and several handguns.
Two suspects have reportedly been arrested.
Authorities said the Trump International Beach Resort has been locked down. Guests have been told to stay in their rooms until the scene is clear.
Aventura police also said they are investigating a second shooting that may be related to the shooting near the resort. In that shooting, a driver was shot, but suffered non life-threatening injuries.
YoungBoy was scheduled to perform at the Rolling Loud music festival in Miami Gardens when the shooting occurred.

The shooting comes just a day after it was reported that YoungBoy has been feuding with rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine‘s baby mother, Sara Molina, and hip hop podcaster, Adam22.
Molina appeared on Adam22’s podcast last week and claimed YoungBoy sent her a video and cursed her out after she gave her opinion on his music.
‘Because someone asked me on my Live like, “What do you think of YoungBoy’s music?” I think he’s disrespectful so I said, “I think he’s an angry little boy,”‘ Molina recalled on the podcast.
‘Then he hit me up like, “Stop talking ’bout me b***h.”‘
Earlier this year, YoungBoy was arrested at the Hyatt House in Atlanta on disorderly conduct charges alongside Starr Thigpen.
The Atlanta Police Department said at the time that housekeeping staff entered the room, which they thought was unoccupied, and YoungBoy instructed Thigpen to get the staff out of the room.
Police said Thigpen struck the housekeeper in the face and the fight continued in the hallway.
The two also were charged with marijuana possession involving less than an ounce.
