BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a shooting that occurred earlier this evening on McIver Lane in Rockledge.
According to Brevard County Sheriff’s Office PIO Tod Goodyear, Deputies responded to an emergency 911 call by a male who advised he had shot his wife. Upon arrival, the Deputies observed the male briefly at the front door.
