1 dead, 2 injured in Cocoa shooting
Investigation still underway
COCOA, Fla. – Cocoa police are investigating a shooting that left one man dead and two other people injured early Saturday.
Around 3 a.m., officers responded to reports of a shooting near the 100 block of Prospect Avenue and Lynell Lane, according to News 6 partner Florida Today.
Police found Terravion Lewis, 19, dead and two other people with gunshot injuries.
Lewis was pronounced dead at the scene and the other victims — a man and a woman — were taken to the hospital and are in stable condition, police said.
Detectives said the three victims left a residence North Fiske Boulevard and Dixon Boulevard and headed to the 900 block of Peachtree Street but were instead dropped off at Prospect Drive and Lynell Lane nearby.
