BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA, FLORIDA – A third suspect wanted in connection with the homicide of Dimitric Bailey has been arrested.
Cocoa Police say Markice Harvey, 26, from Cocoa, surrendered to authorities on Tuesday.
“Harvey is one of three suspects believed responsible for the shooting death of Dimitric Bailey,” said Yvonne Martinez of the Cocoa Police Department.
The other two suspects were arrested last week. Cocoa Police have identified the suspects as 22-year-old Xavier Deon Turner and 24-year-old Kenneth Monte Levatt Jr.
According to the investigation, dispatchers received a call around 8:39 p.m. on Sunday, July 29, about a man found dead inside a car at the end of Vagabond St. in Cocoa. When police arrived they confirmed the victim was dead from a gunshot wound.
Police say the engine was running and the victim, later identified as Bailey, was in the driver seat with at least two gunshot wounds.
The motive for the shooting appears to be a drug-related robbery, according to investigators.
The investigation revealed the three suspects met Bailey in the vehicle with intent to rob him of drugs and money. During the robbery, one of the suspects shot Bailey.
All three men are facing a charge of first degree felony murder, robbery with a firearm and tampering with evidence.
Authorities say the investigation is still ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Central Florida CRIMELINE at 1-800-423-TIPS (8477).
Callers will remain anonymous and can be eligible for cash rewards of up to $5,000 in this case.
