Lee County Sheriff deputies are investigating a shooting that killed one person and left another injured at the Lago Del Sol apartment complex in Fort Myers.

Neighbors tell Four in Your Corner they heard loud bangs Saturday morning. Then neighbors watched from their balconies as LCSO deputies, K-9 units, and helicopters searched the area on Clear Lake Loop off of Gladiolus Drive.

The Sheriff's Office said when they arrived on scene, a man was suffering from what appeared to be a gunshot wound. He was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead. LCSO said another victim arrived at the hospital around the same time, also suffering from a gunshot wound, but his injuries are believed to be non-life-threatening.

Detectives believe it is an isolated incident and there is no danger to the community.

If you have any information, call Crime Stoppers at 1-900-780-TIPS.
