A 41-year-old Palm Bay man was arrested Sunday after police say he shot his sister’s fiancé twice.

Kevin L. McCullough faces an attempted murder charge.

McCullough was involved in an argument with his sister in the driveway of her home on Kosuth Road, police said.

The woman’s fiancé, Larry Nelson, 58, intervened and asked McCullough to leave.

McCullough tried to punch Nelson, who blocked the strike and forced McCullough to the ground, according to police.

Nelson released McCullough when he promised to stop fighting. McCullough then pulled out a handgun, shooting Nelson twice and pistol-whipping him, police said.

Nelson’s injuries were not life-threating. He was taken to a hospital for treatment.

McCullough was taken to the Brevard County Jail where he is being held with no bond.
