A day after a deadly shooting disrupted spring break in Miami Beach, large crowds of undeterred and defiant revelers returned to Ocean Drive to continue the party.

Unlike last year, Miami Beach Police did not impose a curfew following the double shooting on the busiest stretch of South Beach. Cops said the shooting was an isolated incident in what had been a relatively peaceful week of carousing in the party district, according to The Miami Herald.

An arrest had been made after gunshots rang out on the island’s main drive, which was filled with revelers and closed to traffic on St. Patrick’s Day night. A man was killed, and another was injured — and then released from the hospital — as dozens of people ran for cover.

Officials said there was no need for a curfew in the area.

“Given that this seems to have been an isolated incident occurring before midnight, and the crowds have been otherwise calm, it would be hard to justify and legally defend an organized curfew,” Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber reportedly said.

The suspect is cooperating with authorities. Police recovered four weapons at the scene.

“The identities of all parties cannot be released while the investigation is ongoing,” the department tweeted Sunday. “Miami Beach Police Department’s staffing remains enhanced and supplemented with assistance from neighboring law enforcement agencies.”
