Crime scene techs were seen carrying out bags of evidence from a bottom floor apartment. No arrests have been made and the people living their say no comment “it’s an open investigation”.

“For me, it’s more of a why,” said resident Wilfredo Ramos. “I’m curious to know if it was something intended? Did it happen to be wrong place, wrong time?”

The victim was transported to NCH Downtown Naples Hospital with minor injuries.

Osceola Elementary School, Barron Collier High School, and the Greater Naples YMCA were placed on lock down while authorities searched for the suspect.
