What led up to the Memorial Day shooting on Fort Myers Beach

FORT MYERS BEACH, Fla. — New information on what led up to the Memorial Day shooting at Fort Myers Beach was released by the Lee County Sheriff’s Office.

A 37-year-old man told deputies that he was walking up to his friends on the beach when a group of women started fighting. The man tried breaking up the fight and was attacked by the 18-year-old suspect Jatavion Craig of Alabama, deputies said.

The victim said that Craig pulled out a gun and shot at him, deputies said.

LCSO deputies found one shell casing at the scene and were able to identify a lot of people there were at the scene using social media, court documents show.

One man who was at the scene of the shooting said that the suspect’s name was Willie Ford and that he had traveled back to Alabama. LCSO’s Real-Time Crime Center Analysts were able to trace the name back to Jatavion Craig.

Craig had been staying at the Horizon Apartments, deputies said. LCSO deputies watched a person that matched Craig’s description walk out of one apartment. Turns out that it was not Craig, but rather a teen that had gone to school with him in Alabama. He told deputies that he didn’t know where Craig was.

Craig was arrested on June 3 and remains in custody at the Lee County Jail.
