COCOA, Florida – On Sunday morning, the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call from a female who stated a man had been shot in Cocoa.

Based on information from the caller, Deputies searched a remote area off Satellite Blvd in Cocoa where they located the body of 33-year-old PrinceSullman Gana Mohammed, of Merritt Island.

The investigation revealed that the victim and suspect were at a residence in Cocoa ingesting drugs. After taking the drugs, the two left the area in a vehicle driven by a female witness.
