FORT MYERS, Fla. — Could Keion Upshaw's death have been prevented?

One local councilman thinks it's possible.

Fort Myers councilman Johnny Streets Jr. has lived in Fort Myers his whole life and says he's seen an increase in gun violence -- especially incidents like the shooting death of Keion Upshaw.

He was gunned down in broad daylight on Saturday in front of his home off of Gardenia and Michigan avenues.

Streets Jr. says violence like this can be prevented, if the community comes together to improve the following things.

"Your schools, your churches, your homes and your overall community," said Streets Jr.

Fort Myers police may also have found a break in the case Tuesday.

They impounded an s-u-v that matches the exact description of the vehicle they say is connected to Upshaw's death.

We're expecting another update on the case from the department on Wednesday morning.
