Protesters shot at with pellet gun in Fort Myers, one hit in the face
At least one person was hit in the face by pellets at the intersection of Winkler Avenue and Colonial Bouvard in Fort Myers Friday evening.
Four people were holding signs while protesting near the intersection when a man in a black truck fired shots from a pellet gun at them.
The person hit in the face by a pellet was treated at the scene and no one was taken to the hospital.
The protesters said they’re disappointed about the incident.
“We had so much positivity in the road, people honking at us, giving us good support. It just really hurts that someone really had to shoot at us,” said Katiana Alcy.
