2 charged in Titusville drive-by shooting that killed teen, woman

TITUSVILLE, Fla. – Two men have been arrested in connection with a drive-by shooting that killed a teenage boy and a woman last week in Titusville, records show.

Maurice Brown and Rashad Lewis.

Maurice Brown, 37, and Reshod Lewis, 28, face charges in regards to the fatal shooting at a home on 3rd Avenue between DeLeon Avenue and U.S. 1 on Wednesday, March 9.

A report said detectives obtained surveillance video that showed four people hanging around the front of the home. Police said the video showed a dark sedan drive past the four people when shots were fired from the car toward the group.

Two of the four people — identified as Brown and Lewis — were wearing camouflage hoodies and hid behind vehicles parked in front of the home, firing back at the dark sedan “in a reckless manner,” according to a report. Officers said during the shootout, there were “several residences in the line of fire beyond the vehicle they were firing at.”

Brown and Lewis face charges of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and discharging a firearm in public. Brown faces an additional charge of violating pretrial release.

Police responded to the home after the shooting happened around 10 p.m. on March 9th where they found 17-year-old Drayontai Mason and 25-year-old Teressa Henderson, both of Titusville, suffering from gunshot wounds. The victims were taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries and later died, according to police.

A third shooting victim, an 18-year-old man, drove himself to the hospital with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds, according to police. He was in stable condition, according to authorities.
