LEE COUNTY, Fla.- The Lehigh Acres man accused of opening fire in a crowded bar at Gulf Coast Town Center is back in Lee County.

Jose Martins made his first appearance this morning. He's facing charges of aggravated assault and launching a missile into a public place.

Lee County deputies say Martins fired shots into the House of Brewz the night before Thanksgiving. No one was injured.

Martins fled to western North Carolina back in December.

Martins will remain in the Lee County Jail on $500,000 bail.
