Fort Myers Mayor Randy Henderson has claimed that a ‘fringe’ biker gang was responsible for the recent shooting in the downtown district. The incident, which left two people dead and several injured, has shocked the community and sparked concerns about the safety of the area.

Fort Myers Mayor: ‘Fringe’ biker group responsible for downtown shooting

Fort Myers Mayor Randall Henderson Jr. recently spoke up about the shooting incident that took place in the city’s downtown area last Saturday night. According to the Mayor, a “fringe” biker group is responsible for the incident that resulted in one casualty and several injuries.

The incident took place after a motorcycle rally in downtown Fort Myers. Witnesses reported that a group of bikers started revving their engines and making noise on the streets in the early hours of Sunday morning. Suddenly, gunshots were heard, and chaos erupted on the streets. The police arrived at the scene quickly and found a man lying on the street with gunshot wounds. The victim was transported to a nearby hospital, but he passed away shortly after.

According to Mayor Henderson, the group responsible for the shooting is a “fringe” group of bikers who have been causing trouble in the area for some time now. The group is allegedly affiliated with outlaw motorcycle gangs, and the Mayor believes that they are responsible for a lot of the violence that has been happening in the downtown area.

“This is a group of people who are not welcome in our community,” said Mayor Henderson. “We have been working closely with law enforcement to try and get them off the streets, but they keep coming back. This shooting is just the latest example of the violence and chaos that they bring with them.”

The Mayor has called for increased police presence in the downtown area and has urged residents to stay away from any events or gatherings that might be associated with the “fringe” biker group.

“We are taking this very seriously,” the Mayor said. “We will do everything in our power to keep our community safe and to make sure that these people are brought to justice.”

The Fort Myers Police Department has launched an investigation into the incident and is currently working to identify the suspects involved in the shooting. The Department has also released a statement urging anyone with information about the incident or the suspects to come forward and help with the investigation.

“This type of violence will not be tolerated in our community,” said Police Chief Derrick Diggs. “We will do everything in our power to find the people responsible and bring them to justice.”

In the meantime, Mayor Henderson has emphasized the importance of community involvement in keeping the downtown area safe. He urges residents to report any suspicious activity or behavior to the police and to stay away from any potentially dangerous situations.

“We all have a role to play in keeping our community safe,” said the Mayor. “It’s important that we work together to make sure that everyone feels safe and protected in our city.”

As the investigation continues, the residents of Fort Myers are hoping for justice for the victim of this tragic incident and for an end to the violence that has been plaguing their downtown area. Mayor Henderson and the Fort Myers Police Department are committed to making that happen and to ensuring that their community remains a safe and peaceful place for all.
