MIAMI, FL – Investigators with the Broward Sheriff’s Office and the Miami Gardens Police Department arrested a Miramar man who killed two men on the same day in two different counties. At approximately 4:04 p.m. June 22, Broward County Regional Communications received a call in regard to a shooting at 5831 S.W. 27th Street in West Park. Broward deputies responded and located the victim, Roy Gissendanner, 63, lying on the grass, just east of a parking lot in the area, with an apparent gunshot to the head and torso.

Broward deputies and fire rescue personnel attempted to perform life-saving measures on Gissendanner until he was pronounced deceased at approximately 4:15 p.m. by Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue. During the initial preliminary investigation by the responding deputies, it was determined that Gissendanner’s vehicle, a 2003 gold Ford Taurus, was stolen following the shooting and was later considered as a stolen felony vehicle.

Broward Sheriff’s Office homicide detectives responded to the scene and conducted a homicide investigation. During their investigation, which included surveillance footage, detectives identified the suspect as Ian Jackson, 26. The suspect is seen walking from west to east and then turning back. 

At this point, there appears to be an interaction between the suspect and Gissendanner, which leads to Gissendanner exiting his vehicle from the driver’s side seat. Upon Gissendanner exiting the vehicle, the suspect shoots him at least twice. After shooting him, the suspect is observed entering Gissendanner’s vehicle and traveling in an eastbound direction on Southwest 27th Street.
