LEHIGH ACRES, Fla.- Lee County Sheriff's deputies are searching for two suspects involved in a Lehigh Acres shooting. It happened just after midnight on the 4700 block of Leonard Boulevard South.

Deputies found the victim laying on the floor with a gunshot wound near the buttocks. He was sent to the hospital and is expected to recover.

The victim's wife told deputies her husband was on the screened-in porch, when two men came up to the screen and demanded his money. The victim didn't understand them and turned to run inside. That's when he was shot.

Both men fled the scene on foot.

The victim's friend, who was also on the porch at the time of the incident, corroborated the wife's story.

If you have any information, please call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS.
