Police search for man in park shooting; 3 injured
MIAMI (WSVN) -- Police are searching for a gunman who fired several shots into a crowd of people during a youth football game.
Noonie Jenkins was enjoying a night out with her four kids at Gibson Park in Overtown last Friday night when shots were fired. "I would do anything to save my kids, anything," said Jenkins.
According to police, they are searching for Jamar Anton Jordan, who they say is the man responsible for firing shots and injuring three people. Police handed out flyers along Third Avenue and Northwest 12th Street Tuesday morning in hopes someone will come forward with any information. "This individual started shooting basically into the crowed. He didn't care where he was shooting. He then strike three individuals," said Miami Police Department Detective Willie Moreno.
Jenkins said she was standing over her 5-month-old when Jordan started shooting. "He was shooting over this way and I reached up under him and bear hugged him," she said. "And turned him the opposite way and that's when he stopped shooting, because if I wouldn't have done that he would have kept on shooting."
Thomas Burns said his football team ran when they heard the shots. "And they heard just shooting and then the whole football team ran," said Burns.
Jenkins is now teaching her children lessons incase they are caught in a shooting. "I always tell them if any one starts shooting, don't run," she said.
Jordan has two tear drop tattoos underneath his right eye and has the letters MN under his left eye.
Three victims were shot, but endured non-life threatening injuries.
Jordan faces three counts of attempted murder.
