BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – A violent Brevard County felon has been arrested and charged in relation to a shooting that occurred in Port St John in June 2018.
Donovan Adkins, 25, was arrested on October 17, 2018, after a judge issued an arrest warrant for the charges of Felon in Possession of a Firearm and Felon in Possession of Ammunition.
The investigation started after a 911 call was received from a residence in Port St John advising that a firearm had been discharged within the residence. Responding deputies located multiple shell casings and a firearm in a bedroom that was occupied by Adkins.
It was subsequently discovered that Adkins was a convicted felon and laboratory tests confirmed that the spent shell casings were discharged from the firearm located in Adkins’ room.
During the conduct of the investigation Deputies further determined that Adkins had been displaying violent behavior and had been bragging about his participation in the incident. Adkins was transported to the Brevard County Jail where was detained on a $100,000 bond.
This case is another great example of the work our team members do every day to keep our community safe and the dangers they face while serving as Law Enforcement Officers.
