A 16-year-old boy was shot to death yesterday afternoon in Titusville at Third Ave and Booker Street. The shooter ran from the scene, but witnesses told police where he was and he was arrested without incident. Police say the two teenagers had been fighting prior to the shooting.

Brush Fires In Brevard County (Palm Bay, FL) -- Some neighbors in Brevard County are credited with the quick extinguishing of a brush fire. Palm Bay Fire-Rescue says they got a call from neighbors within minutes of seeing a fire near Mariposa Drive. That helped firefighters get a jump on what they say was a fast moving fire. Another brush fire was spotted near Pineda Causeway and South Tropical Trail, but firefighters were also able to get that one quickly under control before any homes were threatened.

Suspected Carjacker Shot And Facing Charges (Orlando, FL) -- What was supposed to be a car sale now has a man in the hospital and facing charges. A man posing as a potential car buyer met with a seller this weekend in Deltona, and the seller says after a test drive, Kissimmee's Michael Cintron-Rodriguez tried to buy the car with counterfeit bills. The seller says he called for backup from an armed friend, and Cintron-Rodriguez took off with the seller in the car. Volusia County deputies say that friend caught up to the two, shot Cintron-Rodriguez in the leg, pulled him out of the car and held him until deputies arrived.

Deadly Police Shooting In Largo (Largo, FL) -- A police officer involved in a deadly shooting is being praised for his actions. Largo Police Officer Matthew Steiner fired several shots at a suspect who police say pinned him against some gas pumps at a Wawa Friday night on North Missouri Ave. Steiner's injuries were not life-threatening, but the unidentified suspect died from his injuries. There's no word on what led up to the incident, but Largo Police say Steiner's actions saved his life and maybe the lives of others at the scene.

Tallahassee Considering Challenge To State Gun Laws (Tallahassee, FL) -- Tallahassee is joining other cities preparing for a battle with the state. Mayor Andrew Gillum last week asked the city attorney to explain to the city commission what power they have to challenge the state's gun laws. Right now, state law prevents cities from passing their own gun laws, and city officials who do so can be fined or removed from office by the governor. The "Tallahassee Democrat" reports half a dozen other cities are also considering challenging the state law.

Two Hurt In Hot Air Balloon Accident (Wesley Chapel, FL) -- An unusual accident in Pasco County has two federal agencies investigating. Two people celebrating their wedding anniversary were hurt this weekend in Pasco County when a hot air balloon hit a power line in Wesley Chapel. The pilot was trying to land the balloon at the time, and the contact with the power line caused it to fall to the ground. None of the injuries are life-threatening, and the FAA and NTSB are investigating.

MSD Students Vow To Keep Pushing For Change (Parkland, FL) -- An MSD student says she and her classmates are just getting revved up in their push for change. Emma Gonzalez says the weekend 'March for Our Lives' was just the beginning of a national call for new gun laws ahead of November's elections. Student Cameron Kasky told CBS's 'Face the Nation' yesterday those changes include an assault weapons ban, a ban on sales of high-capacity magazines and universal background checks. Stoneman Douglas student Kyle Kushov is skeptical, though, and he tells CBS4 it's ironic those blaming government for the failures that led to the shooting now want to trust the government even more.
