COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.- The Collier County Sheriff's Office continues to investigate the circumstances surrounding Friday's deputy-involved shooting.
Deputies responded to the 7-Eleven at Airport Pulling Road and Estey Avenue after someone called to report a suspicious man drinking beer and acting erratically.
The caller said the man appeared to have a gun and was sitting near a dumpster in a heavily populated area, according to the sheriff's office.
The man threatened deputies with what appeared to be a firearm, but was later deemed fake.
Two of the deputies fired at the man who has been identified as Duane Gregory.
Gregory is described as a homeless man with a lengthy criminal history.
He's listed in good condition at Lee Memorial Hospital.
The deputies involved are: Cpl. Charles Cramer, 43 and Cpl. Fano, 38. They have been placed on administrative leave, which is policy procedure during an internal investigation.
Cpl. Cramer, 43 has been a member of the agency for 25 years and is currently assigned to the Major Crimes Bureau, according to the Collier County Sheriff's Office.
Cpl. Fano, 38 has been a member of the agency for 12 years and is currently assigned to the East Naples Patrol District.
