Arrested in Cocoa ShootingThe Brevard County Sheriff’s Office has arrested 26-year-old Kendall Britt of Cocoa for death of Anthony Greenwood on January 18, 2022, in Unincorporated Cocoa.  Britt was arrested at the Brevard County Jail Complex, where he was already incarcerated on unrelated occupied burglary case.  An arrest warrant was issued by Judge Jennifer Taylor charging him with First Degree Premeditated Murder.  Britt is currently being held on a No Bond status.

The investigation began when deputies responded to a residence on Uranus Drive at approximately 9:18 a.m., on January 18, 2022, after an emergency 911 call was received advising a person had been shot in the residence. Upon arrival, deputies located Greenwood who was pronounced deceased at the scene.  Based on evidence collected at the scene and statements gathered during the investigation, agents believe that the shooting occurred as retaliation for a prior incident where Greenwood battered an associate of Britt.
