FORT MYERS, Fla. - The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is assisting the Fort Myers Police Department in investigating a late night murder.
FDLE has confirmed a man was shot and killed on Wednesday night around 10:30 at Monte Vista St. and Marlyn Rd. Fort Myers Police have identified the victim as 40-year-old Tony Seay.
