Georgia Student Identified As One Of Two Victim’s Killed In Miami Beach Spring Break Shootings

March 21, 2023

One of the men who was killed during spring break in Miami Beach has been identified as Georgia college student Jordan Idahosa.

Idahosa, whose brother Sammy described him as a “warrior” and “scholar,” was a student at South Georgia State College before falling victim to gun violence over the weekend, as reported by The Shade Room.

The 21-year-old was shot dead Friday night on South Beach’s Ocean Drive, the first of two fatal shootings over the weekend in the spring break destination, according to WALB.

He’d added: “There’s millions and millions of memories of me and Jordan. We grew up three years apart, and we practically did everything together. He’s like my twin brother.”

He went on to describe his brother as a “warrior” who “still is (with us) in spirit.”

A friend of Jordan’s told the outlet about the moment his friend was fatally shot, leaving another person injured.

Police Call Shooting An Isolated Incident, Another Spring Breaker Shot And Killed In Separate Incident.

Authorities have since called the shooting an isolated incident, and have arrested a person of interest who is reportedly cooperating with investigators.

Meanwhile, another spring breaker was shot to death with a stolen handgun two days later at Ocean Drive and 11th Street, disturbing video of which has circulated on social media.

Dontavious Polk, 24, has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder after he reportedly fled from the crime scene and tossing the gun in doing so.

Police have called that shooting, a “targeted and isolated incident.” Polk allegedly fired at least nine times before running off.

Meanwhile, Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber denounced the violence, saying “we don’t want spring break in our city.”

On Sunday, the mayor imposed a curfew and banned the sale of alcohol after a certain hour in an effort to quell the violence.
