Spring breakers, all relatives, fight gas station gunman: ‘We’d die for each other’

They were celebrating spring break South Florida style and ended up in a life or death struggle with a gunman at a gas station in Oakland Park.

When it was all over, the four young men were shaken up but unhurt, the man with the gun got away, and his alleged accomplice was arrested in short order.

It happened just before 3:45 a.m. Sunday, outside a Mobil gas station at 901 W. Oakland Park Blvd., the Broward Sheriff’s Office said.

The three men from Indiana were staying with Jacob Tanoos — a relative, also from Terre Haute who lives in South Florida now. The four are two sets of brothers who are all cousins.
