A 23-year-old Miami Gardens man died after being shot in South Beach during Sunday’s first hour.
A 911 call at 12:44 a.m. of shots fired brought Miami Beach police to the 1200 block of Collins Avenue where they found Ozzy Jorge, who died from his gunshot wound at Jackson Memorial Hospital.
Just a month and a day ago, Jorge was released from 23 months in prison after a grand theft conviction violated his probation on previous grand theft auto and marijuana possession with intent to sell charges. Osmary Jorge Deleon claimed in an e-mail to The Miami Herald that her brother was in South Beach checking on his pregnant girlfriend and got robbed. She made a Facebook plea to help find Jorge’s killer.
