ESTERO, Fla. - Multiple witnesses tell Fox 4 they heard gunshots outside of the Blu Sushi restaurant at Gulf Coast Town Center early Friday morning. 

Our Breaking News Tracker crew saw deputies combing the area but they have yet to confirm if a shooting happened. However, deputies do say they are not investigating any injures around the area. 

Witnesses tell us they saw a verbal altercation outside of the popular restaurant that grew from a few people to close to 20 people. Not long after, they heard gunshots.
We've reached out to the Lee County Sheriff's Office to confirm details on the investigation.
