 VIERA, FLORIDA — The Brevard County Grand Jury issued a first-degree murder indictment on Tuesday, Aug. 5, charging a 28-year old Cocoa man, Dontavius Olajuwon Grimes, with the July 9 shooting death of Robert Price, 25.

According to Assistant State Attorney Michael Hunt, the two men were acquaintances, but the source of their dispute is unknown.

Price was sitting outside a residence in Cocoa where he had been visiting when Grimes pulled up along with a second unnamed individual. They got out of the car, firing multiple times at the younger man. The Grand Jury heard testimony from a Brevard County Sheriff’s Office crime scene investigator, a Cocoa Police Department detective, and three lay witnesses before beginning their deliberations.
