The article’s last paragraphs are especially informative:
[Pasco County Sheriff Chris] Nocco said fliers advertising the event as a “Zoe” party reference a South Florida gang that has ties to the Tampa area. [Haitian-born party organizer Nesly] Eliscart insists the reference was to nothing more than the Creole word that means bone, “because our strength comes from our bones.”

Moments before the gunfire, Eliscart said he was remarking to someone about how the event went off without a hitch.

“I felt successful,” he said. “I feel like I celebrated too early.”

Tampa Bay Times:

WESLEY CHAPEL — When he heard the explosions of gunfire, Nesly Eliscart feared the worst.

“I thought it was a terrorist attack,” he said.

Eliscart had organized a Haitian Flag Day celebration Sunday at Quail Hollow country club in Wesley Chapel. Near the end of the event, gunshots triggered a stampede of people.

One person was shot, the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office said. Someone else was cut in the hand with a knife. And two pregnant women were trampled.
