**UPDATE** BREVARD COUNTY • ROCKLEDGE, FLORIDA – The officer involved in a shooting incident back on December 1 has resigned from the Rockledge Police Department, according to Chief Joseph P. LaSata.

Galluzzi’s resignation comes during an ongoing investigation by Florida Department of Law Enforcement regarding the shooting incident that left a 17-year-old male shot on December 1 near Cogswell St. and Hawk St in Rockledge.
The incident was captured on a body-camera.
According to Rockledge Police Department spokeswoman Donna Seyferth, authorities responded just before midnight on December 1 after receiving numerous calls from local residents about two people breaking into cars.
