BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Melbourne Police are investigating a Monday afternoon disturbance that created a police response to the residence of 42-year-old Charles Roberts at the 2400 block of Andrews Avenue, Melbourne, Florida, for shots fired.
Roberts during the argument produced a firearm, described as a Glock handgun, and fired several shots into a parked vehicle (Chevy SUV) outside the residence, according to Commander Vince Pryce of the Melbourne Police Department.
The victim was uninjured and retreated to safety prior to calling for the police response.
The reason of the disturbance and the motive for the incident is unknown.
According to Commander Pryce, Roberts re-entered the residence and refused to cooperate with the investigating officers. Officers attempted through various means to communicate with Roberts and arrange his surrender.
After around a two-hour standoff and the combined efforts of on scene officers, Roberts exited the residence where he had concealed himself from capture and surrendered without further incident.
The suspect was transported to the police department for further questioning and was transported to the Brevard County jail and charged with Aggravated Assault With Deadly Weapon Without Intent Kill.
