One injured in shooting at Winkler Avenue Plaza on Sunday

Fort Myers Police confirm one person was injured by a gun shot early Sunday morning at a plaza on Winkler Avenue.

FMPD says around 1:15 a.m. they responded to a call of shots fired and upon arriving to the plaza a large crowd was in the parking lot but began to disperse as law enforcement arrived.

A witness told officers that a shooting took place and as officers investigated they were informed that Timothy Pruitt, 25, had arrived at Lee Memorial with non-life threatening gunshot wounds.

Officers spoke with Pruitt and other witnesses to collect further evidence. Police determined the incident was not a random act.

FMPD says the investigation is ongoing.
