One of the men killed in the shooting during spring break in Miami Beach has been identified as a 21-year-old Georgia college student whose brother described him as a “warrior” and “scientist.”
Jordan Idahosa, a student at Georgia Southern State College in Valdosta, was shot dead Friday night on South Beach Ocean Drive, the first of two fatal shootings over the weekend at the spring break destination, WALB reported.
Jordan was a special man. Jordan’s brother, Sami Idaho, told the news agency.
There are millions and millions of memories about me and Jordan. We’ve been growing up for three years, and we’ve practically done everything together. He added, “He’s like my twin brother.”
He described his brother as a “warrior” who was “still in spirit”.
Jordan was the first Idahosa to leave us. Sami said.
A friend of Jordan described what happened when he heard gunfire, killing him and wounding another person.
“My friend called me to see where I was, and I turned around for about 10 seconds. After that, all I heard were gunshots. I didn’t really know who it was. I couldn’t see anything,” Javon Johnson told WALB.
Police described the shooting as an isolated incident and said they had arrested a collaborator in the investigation.
Two days later in a separate incident, a gunman opened fire on another reveler on Ocean Drive and Eleventh Street using a stolen handgun.
Dontavious Polk, 24, was arrested on first-degree murder charges after he allegedly fled the crime scene and disposed of the weapon along the way, officials said.
Police described the attack as a “targeted and isolated incident”.
Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber has criticized spring break in his community in the wake of the bloodshed.
“We don’t ask for spring break in our city. We don’t want spring break in our city. It’s too noisy, it brings so much chaos and it’s simply too hard to police.”
On Sunday, the mayor imposed a strict curfew and banned the sale of alcohol after certain hours, among other measures, in some parts of the city.
“It is clear that even the unprecedented presence of the police cannot prevent these incidents from occurring,” Gelber said. “The size of the people in our city, the unruly nature of many, and the presence of guns have created a danger that cannot go unchecked.”
