FORT MYERS, Fla.- Fort Myers Police continue to investigate a deadly shooting at the Palm Vista Apartments. Armando Pagan's death marks the 22nd homicide investigation in the city this year.
Pagan was fatally shot inside his apartment. His wife, Liza Rivera, described coming home to a crime scene Wednesday night.
"The police and everybody were already out there and I thought it was just normal, because they were always around the complex, but as I kept going towards my building, my door was open and as I went up the stairs, I found him dead, bleeding," she said.
Pagan leaves behind 5 siblings, his wife, and their unborn baby boy.
"It's just something he always wanted, and now that it's finally happened, they took him away from me, so this is all I have left," Rivera said.
Other family members agreed to talk to WINK News, but did not want to be identified.
Pagan's sister said, "As soon as I heard that my little brother is no longer with us, my first thoughts was this is impossible, not a person like him."
Police have not released a suspect description, but family members believe Pagan was targeted by another tenant of the complex.
"They would always stare at us and I felt like there was a problem and I told my landlord by door was very easy to break in and for two months nobody did anything about it," RIvera said.
