FORT MYERS, Fla. - "A kid that age, their parents should have known where they were. They should have been home somewhere, not out here," says one neighbor.
Two teenagers are recovering from gun shot wounds after bullets went flying through their neighborhood early Wednesday morning.
"We heard Boom Boom Boom Boom, and police where coming all different ways," says another neighbor.
While police have plenty of questions as to what happened at the intersection of Hanson and Royal Palm Avenue at 2 a.m. one questions seems to stick out, "At 2 o'clock in the morning, not at Fort Myers but anywhere, is not a good place for a 16 year old to be unaccompanied by an adult," says Lt. Jay Rodriguez with the Fort Myers Police Deparment.
According to a city ordinance in Fort Myers, the general curfew is 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 p.m. through 5 a.m. on Frriday and Saturday.
Exceptions can be made for holidays and special circumstances like a job. In this case, shots rang out five hours after these teens should have been home and now police are asking parents to keep a closer eye on their kids.
Lt. Rodriguez says, "We're asking these adults to please take responsibility for their juveniles and their minors, find out where they are."
"hey need to be at home," says a neighbor, "and their parents need to start taking control of their kids and they're well being."
