2 dead, 2 wounded in shooting at Florida shopping center

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say two people are dead and two more have been wounded in a shooting at a shopping center in Florida.

The Fort Myers News-Press reports that Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno says the Tuesday night shooting at the Bell Tower Shops in Fort Myers doesn’t appear to be random. WBBH-TV reports a woman at the scene said she was celebrating her birthday when someone fatally shot her husband and son.

Marceno says authorities responded to the shooting around 9:30 p.m. and found the victims. Authorities haven’t released their identities, and Marceno gave no further information.

Marceno says the injured people have been taken to a hospital. He says the severity of their wounds is unknown. He says authorities will release more information later.
