    19-year-old found dead in car in Brevard, deputies say

    A 19-year-old man was found dead Saturday evening in a vehicle in Brevard County, according to sheriff’s officials.

    The man was found around 7 p.m. in the area of San Sebastian Way at the Mission Bay apartments near Viera.

    Deputies said a preliminary investigation has found that the victim was the target of an alleged drug-related robbery.

    On Monday, the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office dive team searched a pond near where the victim’s body was found.

    The Sheriff’s Office did not release the name of the victim or his cause of death.

    Emergency responders on the scene Saturday night reported the man had a gunshot wound to his neck.

    Dispatchers identified the caller as the victim's father and said he reported his son was not breathing and had no pulse.

    According to those who knew the victim, he was a Viera High School graduate.

    Deja Thompson said she was the teen's girlfriend.

    She watched the divers search for evidence Monday.

    "They need to find out who did it because he wasn't the type of person that should have been hurt," Thompson said.

    She called him "special" and said he had a promising future working as an electrician.

    Two weeks ago, Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey announced the creation of a new county-wide task force to stop youth violence the sheriff said is being influenced by drugs, gangs and guns.

    "Our goal with the task force is get to these kids before they get to these situations that are taking their lives," Ivey said.

    The sheriff said that since the announcement of the task force, teams are getting involved with different youth organizations and camps.

    Anyone with any information on the death is asked to call 321-633-8413 or Crimeline at 800-423-8477.

    Doctors urge kids to catch up on vaccinations before school openings

    Data from the Florida Department of Health shows vaccinations dropped 15% in March and 40% in April. That was during the statewide stay-at-home order due to the coronavirus. Some doctors said they are concerned about catching up on the missed appointments and vaccinations.

    "We did such a good job encouraging people to stay home, and now we need to do just as good of a job to help them get back into their doctors offices," said Dr. Jenna Wheeler.

    Wheeler is a Pediatric Critical Care Physician at Winnie Palmer Hospital in Orlando and said doctors’ offices are under strict Centers for Disease Control and Prevention protocols to keep their spaces clean and their patients safe from the virus.

    "The recommendations that their pediatric offices are following include social distancing, having sick kids coming at certain times of the day and well kids coming at a different time to separate them. Having families wait outside and coming in at their appointment times," said Wheeler.

    With many kids heading back to school in the fall, pediatricians are urging parents to schedule their well visits and immunizations. Click here for a list of required vaccinations by grade.

    "With Measles, something a lot of people talk about when it comes to vaccines, we know as the number of people vaccinated falls, there's a higher risk for an outbreak in the community. If we're talking about going back to school and all the safety measures in place, we really want to make sure that our kids are safe, not just from COVID-19 but from all the illnesses out there and are preventable," said Wheeler.

    Wheeler said parents should call their kids' primary care doctors or pediatricians and talk about any concerns they may have about showing up for an appointment.

    Two weeks ago, Dr. Raul Pino with Florida Department of Health-- Orange County made a push to vaccinate students, specifically those going into middle school.

    "We have vaccinated already over 1,000 kids in the last three weeks and we want to prevent any outbreaks within an outbreak, so we will be insisting on flu vaccinations for this fall," said Pino.

    The Florida Department of Health in Orange County is offering free back to school immunizations for kids age 4 to 18. The event begins July 20 and goes through Aug. 8, but you must make an appointment first by calling 407-723-5004.

    What to know before you go:

    • For ages 4 years to 18 years of age only
    • Bring student’s current shot record
    • Bring child’s birth certificate, passport, or other government issued ID
    • One parent or guardian per child
    • Parent or Guardian must bring a valid ID
    • For 680 forms child must be present

Storm Drains need to be kept clean

It is the time of the year that there are leaves falling. We need to keep our storm drains clear and not let them fill with leaves. The obstruction creates a standing water issue when it can't flow freely into the stormdrains. Please clean up leaves from the curb in front of your house and especially from the area around stormdrains.

Also please be aware that according to Federal, State and Local regulations, no pollutants can be allowed to enter the stormdrain. If you or your landscaper force yard waste into the stormdrain, you are in violation.

If you see someone dumping into a stormdrain, please anomalously report it at this Seminole County website shown below or call Lake Mary Code Enforcement at (407) 585-1365.

Community Crime Watch

There have been recent reports of crimes in our community. Homeowners should watch out for suspicious or unusual behavior and be vigilant in reporting any unusual activity to the police.

Recently a car was stolen from the driveway of a homeowner during the night. Always make sure your car doors are locked when your car is parked and that you have removed valuables. You should use a car alarm. You may also consider having an ignition kill switch installed that only you will know where it is located. This will hopefully cause enough of a burden to the thief to stop your car from being stolen.

A homeowners has reported that in the early morning hours someone was knocking on a door yelling “I'm hurt let me in”. When the homeowner stated that they were calling the police, the person ran off. This was an attempt to gain entry to the home and the owner would have been in grave danger if they had opened the door. You should never open your door to someone that you don't know and always keep all of your doors and windows locked and secured.

Home bulgaries have also been reported. You should consider installing motion activated lights on the exterior of your home. Lights are the best deterrent to crime.
