    Detectives took somebody into custody for questioning, but that person was later released because the police say the shooting was self defense.

    "I just heard a lot of arguing. The shooter saying something about, 'Back up and get away from me," said a laundromat employee who did not want to be identified.

    Cocoa police said the two were arguing about a failed relationship between each other's relatives.

    Neither the condition of the wounded man nor the names of those involved have been released.
