The brother of a 21-year-old college student from Georgia who was killed in the Miami Beach shooting during spring break has described him as a “warrior” and “scholar.”

Jordan Idahosa, a student at South Georgia State College in Valdosta, was fatally shot on Ocean Drive on Friday night, according to WALB.

“Jordan was a special guy. He went from being homeschooled to being a scholar,” Jordan’s brother, Sammy Idahosa, told the news outlet.

“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 added.

He described his brother as a “warrior” who “still is in spirit.”

“Jordan was the first Idahosa to depart from us. It doesn’t feel real,” Sammy said.

One of Jordan’s friends described what happened when shots rang out, killing him and injuring another person.

First-degree murder charges were brought against Dontavious Polk, 24, after he allegedly fled the crime scene and abandoned the weapon along the way, according to authorities.

The attack was described by police as “targeted and isolated.”

In the wake of the bloodshed, Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber criticised spring break in his neighbourhood.

“We don’t ask for spring break in our city. We don’t want spring break in our city. It’s too rowdy, it brings too much disorder and it’s simply too difficult to police,” he said.

On Sunday, the mayor imposed a strict curfew and banned the sale of alcohol after a certain hours, among other measures, in some parts of the city.

“It is clear that even an unprecedented police presence could not prevent these incidents from occurring,” Gelber said. “The volume of people in our city, the unruly nature of too many, and the presence of guns has created a peril that cannot go unchecked.”
