Police investigate shooting outside Cape Coral business

CAPE CORAL, Fla. - A convicted felon was arrested for threatening two men with a gun at a Cape Coral business. 

Cape Coral Police say Kevin Bruzos, a convicted felon, had threatened a person with a firearm. Bruzos left, then returned and threatened the same person with the firearm again as well as a second person who was legally licensed to carry a concealed firearm. The concealed carry permitted person ordered Bruzos to drop his gun. Bruzos did not drop it and instead aimed it at the permitted person, who in turn defended himself and shot Bruzos. 

Kevin Bruzos is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon. The concealed carry permit holder who was threatened by Bruzos and shot him in self-defense is not facing any charges.
