John Jordan was cleaning his .45-caliber handgun at their Port Charlotte home after returning from a local gun range in Punta Gorda. While cleaning the arm, the firearm discharged and hit 22-year-old Joshua Alan Jordan. Family members performed CPR on Joshua until emergency responders arrived and took him to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
John, who describes himself as a husband, father, teacher, musician, technician, and biker on his Facebook page, was not been charged for the death of his son. Detectives say the shooting was accidental.
