BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA, FLORIDA – On July 9, Robert Lee Price was shot and killed outside the residence located at 131 Aurora Street in Cocoa.
Police arrested Dontavis Grimes but the second shooter, Antonio Michael Hilton, continues to elude capture. Police have a warrant for Hilton’s arrest for 1st degree premeditated murder.
Price’s mother, Telicia Pruitt, was at the Cocoa Police Department with Investigators and the media on Monday, asking the public for their help in locating Hilton.
Cocoa Police believe Hilton could be hiding in Brevard or Orange County or possibly the Atlanta, Georgia area. Police say he is armed and dangerous.
In reference to the shooting: Witnesses told police they observed a vehicle stop and the first suspect, Grimes, exited the vehicle with a chrome plated firearm in his hand and approach Price.
Grimes told the victim to “talk your s–t now” and shot Price multiple times. Price tried to get away from Grimes but Grimes continued to shoot at Price.
Grimes and Antonio Michael Hilton stood over Price as he was on the ground, leaning against a vehicle.
Price asked both suspects “why are you all killing me?”
Grimes then looked at Hilton and stated, “now you get some of that!”
Hilton then raised his firearm and shot Price multiple times, continuing to shoot until Price fell to the ground. Hilton then leaned over Price and shot Price again several more times. Both suspects then returned to their vehicle and left the area.
Police know Hilton to be armed and dangerous and ask that the public not approach Hilton but call police or Crimeline at 800-423-TIPS (8477) if you have any information. Crimeline is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Hilton.
