Lehigh Acres drive-by shooting, crash ends with arrest

Gunshots were fired from a vehicle at a busy intersection, and it ended in a crash and with an arrest.

Suspect E’Dareon Jayquan West, 25, was arrested after being involved in a crash in Lehigh Acres Thursday morning.

West faces charges for four counts of aggravated assault, one count of improper exhibition of a firearm and one count of discharging a firearm from a vehicle.

Deputies responded to the crash just east of the intersection with Colonial Boulevard and State Road 82. It involved the vehicle he was driving and one other.

It’s not confirmed if there were any injuries in the crash despite what we know about charges against West.

West is in custody at Lee County Jail without set bond.
