Two thieves at large after Lee County gun robbery

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Police are searching for at least two armed and possibly dangerous suspects after a gun sale went wrong in a Buffalo Wild Wings parking lot at the Forum.

Sources said a man was trying to sell two guns in the parking lot Tuesday night at around 6 p.m.

However, the man who was supposed to purchase the guns pulled out his own and held the seller at gunpoint. He took the other weapons and escaped into a black getaway car with another man.

No injuries were reported.

“That is really really scary,” said mother Danielle Aguirre. “All I can say is that all the people out there, just keep your kids safe and call the police if you see something suspicious around the neighborhood or anywhere.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Fort Myers Police Department at (239) 321-7700.
