LEHIGH ACRES, Fla.-- The man in a standoff with Lee County deputies peacefully gave up about 7:15 this morning.  The Sheriff's Office reports he got into a fight with someone else in the house very early today.  The other person managed to leave before deputies arrived but the man remained inside with a gun.  Schools in the area were notified but never needed to evacuate.  They were able to talk him out about three hours after the standoff began.
