North Miami Beach Council screening for weapons

Anyone who enters North Miami Beach City Hall for a City Council meeting must now agree to be searched.

In response to a recent deadly shooting rampage during a Kirkwood, Mo., city council meeting, the North Miami Beach Police Department, council members and staff decided to step up security and check every person who enters the building.

On Tuesday, meeting attendees emptied their pockets, watched as their briefcases and purses were searched and waited as a police officer moved a hand-held metal detector up and down their bodies in search of weapons.
