Young Man Fatally Shot During Miami Spring Break: Police

Miami Beach police have located a person of interest regarding Sunday morning's beach shooting.

The unidentified individual is currently being interviewed by detectives.

Antoinne Decade, 20, died after being shot in Miami Beach near a large crowd of Spring Breakers. The shooting occurred along the 900 block of Ocean Drive.

Miami Beach police said the Decade was shot in the chest shortly after midnight Sunday and later died at Jackson Ryder Trauma Center.

No other details were released.

Another shooting happened less than 20 minutes later along the 700 block of Ocean Court, but it doesn't appear anyone was hit and no suspects or victims have been identified.

Police said they recovered four shell casings and were working viable leads.

The shootings come amid Miami's sometimes rowdy Spring Break. Police shut down a portion of Ocean Drive for more than an hour because of unruly spring break revelers Friday night after a crowd migrated off the beach and onto the road, resulting in small fights. Police said some threw objects at passing cars.
