BREVARD COUNTY • ROCKLEDGE, FLORIDA – Detectives in Rockledge are looking for a person of interest in connection with a Nov. 16 homicide.

Rockledge Police Department Community Information Officer Michael Cadore said that at 10 a.m. Nov. 16, police responded to a residence at 987 Pinson Boulevard for a report of shots fired.

Upon arriving, officers found Antonio L. Knight of Rockledge, 23, shot to death in his car parked in a carport.
