New details released in shooting involving NPD officers


NAPLES, FLA. – Investigators released the 911 calls made the night investigators say Luis “David” Monroig shot his girlfriend Amy Young then shot himself.

Officials say one gun was found on the bed and another on the floor next to Monroig’s hand. WINK News has learned Young’s children were in the home when the violence started. Her daughter desperately called for help.

According to the 911 call, Young’s daughter found her mother bleeding near the front porch and Monroig with a bullet in his head in the bedroom. Police reports reveal Monroig’s son said Amy went out for the evening and was not home when Monroig returned home from work. Monroig’s son also said after several hours, his father was yelling about Young wondering why she wasn’t home yet.

Reports say when Amy came home she appeared drunk and the children saw the two arguing outside. When Young’s daughter took her other children to their dad’s house, they came home and found her face down in the front yard bleeding. Upon entering the home, Monroig was found with a gunshot wound to his head and unresponsive in the bedroom.

Lee County detectives say Monroig shot Young and left her with a critical injury to the side of her face then shot and killed himself. Last week, the State Attorney’s Office cleared Amy Young of any wrong doing.
