A man accused of shooting to death his friend turned himself into the Broward Sheriff’s Office Wednesday.

Bernard Hamp, 36, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Luis Jordan, 23.

Hamp showed remorse for the killing as he described what happened.

The fight started Monday night in front of the 15th Street Market in Pompano Beach and escalated when Jordan threw a bottle at Hamp’s head, according, to the sheriff’s office. Hamp ran into the market and grabbed a gun he knew was kept behind the counter. He chased Jordan through the parking lot, shooting several times, authorities said.

Jordan collapsed, with a bullet wound to the head.

Hamp fled in a grayish-blue, 1995 Chevy Cavalier with the Florida license tag ANHB33. The vehicle has not been located.

Anyone with information about the shooting or the car is asked to call 954-765-4321 or Broward Crime Stoppers anonymously at 954-493-8477.
