HIT AND RUN SUSPECT CHARGED WITH HOMICIDE

Galvin Lemazia Ware

A local man was arrested in connection with the September 22, 2020, hit and run, which left the victim lying in the road with life-threatening injuries, who later died as a result of those injuries. 

Galvin Lemazia Ware, 25, of Titusville, was charged with 

  • Aggravated Battery with a Deadly Weapon
  • Leaving the Scene of a Crash without Rendering Aid Involving Serious Bodily Harm 
  • Robbery with Force 
  • Driving with a Suspend/Revoked/Cancelled License Causing Serious Bodily Harm

*Additional charges as of September 28, 2020:

  • Vehicular Homicide
  • Leaving the Scene of a Crash With a Death

The preliminary investigation revealed the suspect drove over Robert Boyd Johnston, 41, of Titusville, in an unidentified white 4 door sedan, and fled the scene in the area of Wager Avenue and Union Street. 

Investigative evidence, including the surveillance photo of the vehicle released to the public by detectives, later identified as 2002 white Hyundai Sonata, ultimately led to the identity and subsequent arrest warrant issued for the suspect. 

At approximately 9:15 PM on Friday, September 25, 2020, the Titusville Police SWAT team entered a residence on Warren Court and took the suspect into custody, only after several hours of standoff with police, in which the suspect refused to exit the residence. 

Johnston succumbed to his injuries at a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased. 

Ware is being held at the Brevard County Jail without bond.
