2 found dead in Fort Myers apartment after shots fired

FORT MYERS, Fla. Two men were found dead Monday morning in an apartment at Gulfstream Isles, Fort Myers police Lt. Jay Rodriguez said.

Gunfire at the apartment complex off Summerlin Road prompted a call to police around 8:30 a.m. Weapons were found in the apartment, Rodriguez said.

The apartment building was evacuated, according to Rodriguez.

It initially appeared suspects were barricaded inside an apartment. But police aren’t looking for anyone connected to the case, Rodriguez said.

Drivers and pedestrians were earlier told to avoid the area near the intersection of Boy Scout and Summerlin drives, but Rodriguez said later that no threat to the public exists.

No further information was immediately available.
