Shortly before 3:30 p.m. on March 25, police responded to the report of a disturbance at a Merritt Island home and found Kapricia Bishop suffering a fatally gunshot wound, the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office said.

The following morning, officers took Bishop’s sister, Brittany Bishop-Gillison, 30, into custody and booked her into the Brevard County jail on suspicion of first-degree premeditated murder with a firearm.
