Investigators have identified the man who was killed Saturday afternoon during a double shooting in Mims.

Ashton Geiger, 30, of Mims was pronounced dead at the scene, the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office reported.

The double shooting happened just before 3 p.m. near Gray Lane, a short residential road just northeast of the intersection of East Main Street and Harry T. Moore Avenue.

After deputies responded to the incident, they learned a second male had been taken from the scene to a local hospital with a gunshot wound, a BCSO press release said. That shooting victim has not been publicly identified.

Messages seeking additional information were left for sheriff's spokesperson Tod Goodyear.
