Saturday evening the ninth annual Fort Myers, Florida Zombicon brought out a crowd of at least 20,000, just in time to celebrate the Halloween season. The festivities were spoiled, however, when a lone gunman opened fire on the crowd, injuring five and leaving one festival-goer dead.
Police are now hoping that witnesses can help provide photos and videos taken at the event in order to track down the gunman. A recent video released by police shows a male, believed to be Hispanic, fleeing the scene, and dressed in a black t-shirt and black and red baseball cap.
Reports from witnesses at the event claim that the man was seen firing a black semi-automatic handgun into the crowd. He then fled down First Street in the direction of the Federal Courthouse. If anyone has information on the alleged suspect, contact Fort Myers Police at (239) 321-7700 or text C-R-I-M-E-S (274637) Keyword FMPD.
