Two arrested for homicide in Ft. Myers drug deal

Two suspects have been arrested in a fatal shooting that took place on September 22nd in Fort Myers. Both males, one 19-years-old and the other 21-years-old, are from another state. They are charged with second degree homicide and robbery after fatally shooting a 23-year-old Fort Myers man in what is now known to be a drug deal gone bad. The suspects travelled to the location of the crime to purchase marijuana.

Ring doorbell surveillance videos are what detectives were able to use to positively identify the suspects. The Fort Myers Police Captain states they provided excellent footage which showed the suspects fleeing from the scene. From those, a positive identification was able to be made and detectives travelled to the state of Georgia to apprehend the men. Multiple law enforcement agencies assisted the investigation.

Investigations are continuing to determine the connections between the men, and how the drug deal was arranged. It is known that the men were only in the Fort Myers area for a few days, and there has been no prior contact established between the suspects and the victim.

In the state of Florida, second degree homicide, when combined with a robbery charge, can become a first degree capital felony with the possibility of the death penalty. A defendant facing charges of this magnitude should retain the services of an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible for the best possible outcome. One should never enter a courtroom alone when facing the possibility of a death penalty.
