Miami Beach police making fewer arrests this Memorial Day weekend
Police make half number of arrests from last year
MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – Under the watchful eye of the Miami Beach police, the Memorial Day weekend entered its "hump day" Sunday.
In the air is a reminder of what this weekend is all about: the National Salute to America’s Heroes Air & Sea Show.
On the streets, crowds have remained under control but things haven't gone without a hitch.
Miami Beach police are investigating a shooting that took place at about 6 p.m. Saturday on Collins Avenue and Sixth Street.
Police have arrested Dontavious Johnson, 25, as a suspect in the shooting.
Officers believe the victim fled after the shooting.
Overall, Miami Beach police have made roughly half the number of arrests they did last year. They attribute the lower number to the heavy police presence out on the beach.
