2 found with bullet wounds in Lehigh Acres

Two people were found with gunshot wounds early Wednesday morning in a marsh on Westminster Community property, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office said.

The pair indicated they were shot near a 7-Eleven on 4325 Lee Blvd., where deputies responded to reports of a possible abduction, the sheriff’s office said. Their wounds are not-life threatening, according to the sheriff’s office.

It’s unclear if an abduction took place, but the pair were found after getting out of a Hyundai they crashed into a chain-link fence while fleeing from the deputies, the sheriff’s office said. A 15-year-old boy was arrested and is facing charges of fleeing and eluding.

Crime scene tape could be seen with patrols on both sides of the entrance to the 7-Eleven. Deputies could also be seen patrolling inside and outside the convenience store.
