PUNTA GORDA- Charlotte County Sheriff’s Major Crimes Unit detectives are asking for the public’s help for any information they might have in the shooting death of Prinis M. Battle, 27, of Ft. Myers. He was shot in his car in Port Charlotte Monday around 5:45 p.m.

Sheriff Bill Cameron said, “Anyone who may have information about this fatal shooting is asked to call the CCSO at 941-639-2101, or Crime Stoppers at 800-780-TIPS (8477).”
