LEHIGH ACRES, Fla – The Lee County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a death near the corner of Bolt Lane and Wilson Road.

Deputies tell WINK News they got the call just before 1 a.m. Friday.

Family members identified the victim as 43-year-old Tehran Leaphart. They say their loved one was gunned down in a driveway, outside a friend’s home.

The victim’s father tells WINK his son was a good man.

LCSO would only confirm a death investigation, and did not provide further details about the crime, or victim.

They did not say whether this was a random act, or if Leaphart was the intended target. There was also no mention of an arrest, or suspect.

A neighbor tells WINK she heard about five gunshots Friday morning, before hearing a car speed off.

She also knew the victim, telling us he had children, and that this was a tragedy.
