BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Agents from the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Unit arrested 25-year-old Nael Abraham of Rockledge after a warrant was issued for his arrest in connection to an alleged road rage incident in Orange County.
The arrest is pursuant to an incident that occurred on July 28, 2020, when Orange County Deputies responded to the intersection of S. Orange Blossom Trail and Consulate Drive, Orlando, in reference to a shooting.
Upon arrival at the scene Orange County Deputies found a 45-year-old victim sitting in the driver’s seat of his vehicle that was stopped at the intersection.
The victim had been shot and was transported to the hospital where he was later pronounced deceased.
Subsequent investigation determined that the shooting stemmed from a road rage incident where Abraham pulled up next to the victim’s vehicle, fired a single shot from his own car, tragically striking the victim in the head and killing him.
A collaborative investigative effort between Orange County Homicide Detectives and Brevard County Sheriff’s Agents positively identified Abraham as the shooter leading the Orange County Detectives to obtain a warrant for Abraham’s arrest.
As a result of the warrant, BCSO Fugitive Agents subsequently located and arrested Abraham in Cocoa on charges of Second Degree Murder with a Firearm.
Abraham was transported to the Brevard County Jail where he is being held pending extradition to Orange County on a “No Bond” status.
I could not be more proud of our Agents who assisted in this investigation and our Fugitive Unit who worked diligently to get this violent individual off our streets and safely behind bars so he can’t hurt anyone else!
