    Jordan had gotten into an argument just before the shooting, police said. Three people were hit with bullets as a large crowd dashed for cover. The victims suffered non life-threatening injuries and are all expected to make a full recovery.

    Overtown had just celebrated the park's re-opening after a multimillion-dollar facelift.

    Jordan is described as a black male, 6-foot-0, 140 pounds, with gold teeth, two tear drop tattoos under his right eye and the letters M&M under his left eye.

    Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
