Fort Meyers, Edison Mall Parking Lot Turned into a War Zone:

In what appears to be a deliberate target, a car pulled up in a busy shopping mall and after the shooting stopped, one man was dead and the other unharmed.

As the unknown number of assailants pulled up in a vehicle with high-powered rifles and began to open fire, Edison Mall parking lot became a war zone as more than 100 rounds of ammunition were directed at two men, as they strolled through the parking lot of the mall heading toward the entrance. Unfortunately, one of the men would not make it to the door and the other would be left shaken but unharmed.

Lt. Jay Rodriguez of the Fort Meyers Police Department said shell casings were found up and down two rows of the parking lot, leading authorities to believe that the attackers were targeting a man “as he was running towards the mall. Three vehicles were completely shot up and the wall of the mall was also shot up pretty good.” Lt. Rodriguez went on to reiterate how crowded the mall was with plenty of holiday shoppers and how much worse it could have been.

Fort Meyers Police are looking for the unidentified attackers who fled in a “Gray-Four Door Vehicle.” The motive for the shooting is unknown at this time.

The name of the deceased man is Thomas Goodman and other man was not harmed.
