LEE COUNTY, Fla. - The Lee County Sheriff's Office is looking for the person or people they say are responsible for a shooting during an armed robbery on Carolina Ave and Tice St.
Deputies found the victim bleeding from the head, with a laceration that may have come from being grazed by a bullet or by being hit in the head. She was taken to Lee Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The victim told deputies she was walking down Tice St. when two men in a dark colored minivan approached her, aimed a gun at her and demanded her purse. She said, "No." and saw a flash. The next thing she knew, she was on the ground.
Her husband was on the phone with her as the crime was taking place. He told deputies he immediately left his house, jumped on a bike and headed toward her.
Neighbors said they heard a gunshot, but no one witnessed the incident.
If you have any information, you are asked to call SWFL Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS.
