Two people taken to Lee Memorial Hospital after wounded in shooting at Fowler Street plaza 1

Two people were taken to a hospital Sunday night after they were wounded in a shooting at the Columbus Square Plaza on Fowler Street.

Fort Myers police public information officer Kristin Capuzzi confirmed that the department responded to a firearm discharge at the plaza.

 “We do have two victims that have been transported to (Lee Memorial Hospital) and are receiving medical treatment. There’s no threat to the public,” Capuzzi said.

A maroon-colored sedan with all its doors open and trash and multiple bullet markers nearby was corralled by police crime scene tape in front of the Little Caesars pizza in the plaza.

About a fourth of the plaza was cordoned off by crime scene tape.

Police could not confirm the nature of the shooting.

The incident was the second day in a row with an injury shooting. Shootings were reported in Cape Coral Saturday morning and in Charleston Park in east Lee County Saturday evening.
