    BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. - Two suspects are dead after a home invasion in Brevard County, deputies said.

    The shooting occurred on West Court near U.S. 1 on Thursday.

    The Brevard County Sheriff's Office is working to identify the men who were shot and determine if they knew the individuals in the home where the shooting took place.


    “There had to be at least five or six ambulances here and I don't know how many police people,” said neighbor Brenda Dennis.

    Investigators said they were called there after residents reported a home invasion where two masked suspects were shot. Both died.

    One of the two suspects managed to make it out of that home, but he didn't get far. He collapsed out in the street in front of the home.

    Deputies are still investigating the shooting.

    No one is facing charges.
