**UPDATE (10:45am 10/10)** -- Sheriff Carmine Marceno has identified the victims in Tuesday night's fatal shooting at Bell Tower Shops.

They are 56-year-old Kevin Robinson and 22-year-old Javarcia Riggins. Next of kin has been notified. 


FORT MYERS, Fla. - Two people are dead, and two others injured after a shooting at the Bell Tower Shops in Fort Myers tonight. 

Lee County Sheriff's Deputies say they received calls of shots fired around 9:30 p.m. 

Witnesses say they heard several shots from nearby bars and restaurants. One woman tells Fox 4 via Twitter that she was upstairs at Society and had to wait for Deputies to arrive. When our crew arrived on scene, people told them, "Find the shooter."

Deputies haven't said exactly where it all happened, but witnesses tell Fox 4 that it was in the area outside the Bed, Bath and Beyond and the TGI Fridays.

“It does not appear to be random.  I can tell you that, and as we get the details, we'll get them to you,” said Sheriff Carmine Marceno at a press conference late Tuesday night.
