BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA, FLORIDA – The Cocoa Police Department has arrested two men in connection with a shooting yesterday in Cocoa.

Cocoa Police Department spokeswoman Officer Barbara Matthews said that police were called to a fight on Monday which began just off the campus in the area of Cocoa High School.

“The fight continued to the area of Brevard Community College parking lot,” Matthews said.

As police arrived a number of subjects fled, however, officers were able to detain seven subjects and, at the request of BCC security, the subjects were removed from the campus for trespassing.

A short time later, police were called to the 1000 block of N. Fiske Boulevard in reference to a shooting.

“”Upon arrival, police found the victim who had been shot one time in the lower hip area,” Matthews said. “The shooting victim was one of the individuals who had been removed from BCC so we do know he was involved in the original fight.”

The shots came from a car that was traveling southbound on North Fiske Boulevard.

On Tuesday, police arrested: Davonte Lamon Williams of Cocoa, 19, and Laqual Ravion Cunningham of Cocoa, 18.

Matthews said both Williams and Cunningham have been charged with aggravated battery with a firearm, principal to a shooting in the first degree and fighting.
