CAPE CORAL, Fla.- Cape Coral Police arrested 25-year-old Gregory Page last night after witnesses said he aimed a gun at patrons inside Diamond Billiards and then fired two shot into the ground and the air. Page later admitted to having carried a pistol and disposing of it in the water retention/swale area of the Downtowner Carwash, according to police.
Police were called to the billiards, located at 1242 SW Pine Island Rd., around 11:30 p.m., where eyewitnesses said the suspect, later identified as Page, had gotten into a fight inside the business that continued out into the parking lot. Page reportedly pulled a pistol, pointing it at two people, and then fired a shot at the ground and into the air, saying, “I have a gun. I’ll kill you.” The victims were in fear for their lives and fled upon seeing the gun. Responding officers were told by witnesses that the suspect fled on foot, across Pine Island Rd.
Officers found Page in a front yard on the 300 block of SW 11th Place. Multiple witnesses independently identified Page as the subject who made threats and fired the gun.
Page initially told officers he never had a gun, but that his friend, “Mike,” did and offered it to him. Page later admitted to having carried a pistol and disposing of it as he ran away, heading into the neighborhood where he was subsequently located.
Cape Coral Police Department Detectives and Forensics responded and collected evidence.
Page was arrested, charged with Aggravated Assault, Carrying a Concealed Firearm, Discharging a Firearm in Public, Improper Exhibition of a Firearm, and Resisting Without Violence. He was later transported to Lee County Jail.
