FORT MYERS, Fla.- Fort Myers Police have arrested three men involved in yesterday afternoon's drive-by shooting on Cleveland Ave., near the Save-A-Lot.
FMPD recieved multiple calls in reference to the altercation around 3:20 p.m. Witnesses reported that the driver of a gold pick-up truck was ramming into a small, two-door, gray vehicle. The callers further indicated that occupants of the gray vehicle were shooting at the gold truck.
Responding officers found a small gray vehicle, matching the description provided by the callers, pulling into 2929 Broadway. The officers conducted a traffic stop on the suspect vehicle and detained the driver, 21-year-old Kyle Irvin. The front seat passenger was identified as 26-year-old Rodrick Pasley. A female passenger was in the back seat. When Pasley was ordered to exit the vehicle, an officer saw a black handgun fall from his lap onto the floorboard. All of the occupants were detained for the investigation.
At the same time, another responding officer was flagged down at the intersection of SR 82 and Broadway Ave. by Craig Spurlock, who was driving a gold Chevrolet pick-up truck. The officer noticed that the vehicle had several bullet holes in the front portion of the truck. This vehicle matched the description of the gold truck involved in the incident. Officers brought Spurlock to 2929 Broadway and he positively identified the vehicle that Irvin was driving as the same vehicle involved in the altercation with him on Cleveland Ave. Spurlock reported that both Irvin and Pasley fired a handgun at his vehicle during the altercation.
Detectives responded to the scene to further conduct the investigation. The investigation revealed Spurlock and his wife, later identified as the passenger in the back seat of the gray vehicle, were involved in an early domestic argument. His wife asked Irvin and Pasley to pick her up, so she could get away from Spurlock. At some point, Spurlock began chasing them in his gold Chevrolet truck. Spurlock rammed the driver's side of Irvin's vehicle with his truck and forced it off the roadway, near the intersection of Cleveland Ave. and Grace Ave.
Detectives interviewed the involved parties and obtained statements from independent witnesses. Irvin and Pasley were arrested and charged with Aggravated Assault with a Firearm, Discharging a Firearm from a Vehicle, and Shooting into an Occupied Vehicle. Additionally, Pasley was charged with Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon. Spurlock was also arrested, charged with Aggravated Assault with a Weapon.
