FORT MYERS, Fla.- The Fort Myers Police Department is investigating a shooting that left one woman injured Sunday evening on Alhambra Dr.
Dispatchers received multiple calls around 9:00 p.m. in regards to gunshots heard in the area. Officers arrived on the scene and were flagged down by one of the victims, who said his girlfriend was suffering from two non-life-threatening gunshot wounds.
