Boy, 16, fires shots at Melbourne officers

During the police interview, the 16-year-old grandson came from a back bedroom and began firing at police.

As officers were talking with family members, the suspect entered the room and opened fire.

West Melbourne Police were called to a home in the 5100 block of Martin Lane at 11:57 p.m. Wednesday after the caller said her 16-year-old grandson was throwing things inside the house, according to police.

They did not return fire.

No officers or occupants of the home were injured, according to police.

Two other individuals present at the time of the shooting were unable to get out.

The Brevard County Sheriff's Office's SWAT team assisted police during the hours-long standoff. No one was hit by the gunfire, but authorities were forced out of the home with three other individuals.

West Melbourne Police Department Capt. Richard Cordeau said during a press conference that multiple shots were fired at the officers, which continued as officers attempted to retreated from the residence. Police ask that if you have not evacuated and live on that street, please stay inside your home. The second occupant escaped just after 5 a.m.

Some homes have been evacuated on Martin Lane. Now the only person believed to remain inside the home is the shooter.
