Description of Incident:
The man being sought for the Monday afternoon homicide in front of the 15 Street Market in Pompano Beach turned himself in to Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies Wednesday (Oct. 3).
After the shooting Monday, BSO Investigators searched for Bernard Hamp, 36, through the night and obtained a warrant for his arrest Tuesday, Oct. 2. The following afternoon he surrendered to deputies and spoke to investigators about what led him to kill his friend Luis Jordan, 23. Investigators determined Hamp and Jordan were in front of the 15 Street Market when the two men began to argue. Jordan retrieved a bottle from the ground and threw it at Hamp striking him in the head. Hamp ran into the market and grabbed a gun he knew was kept behind the counter and chased Jordan, shooting at him multiple times through the parking lot of the Georgia Grocery store. Jordan collapsed in the field adjacent to the strip mall with a bullet wound to the head. Pompano Beach Fire Rescue pronounced him dead at the scene.
Hamp showed remorse during the interview with detectives and said he and the victim had known each other for several years. Hamp was booked into the BSO Main Jail facing one count of first degree murder.
Hamp fled the scene of the crime in a grayish-blue, 1995 Chevy Cavalier with the Florida license tag #ANHB33, which has not been located.
Anyone with information about the shooting or the vehicle is asked to contact 954-765-4321 or Broward Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at 954-493-TIPS (8477).
