FORT MYERS, Fla. – The streets of downtown Fort Myers are expected to be crowded once again as an event-filled weekend is underway, however there’s still something looming around and everyone is still talking about it–the Zombicon shooting.
“We’re ready to move on,” Pam Lemmerman, the owner of The Connection, said.
“Whatever event may be coming down here, anytime you have a lot of people congregated in an area like that, again, if somebody’s stupid they may do something,” Homer Gaines said.
Fort Myers police are asking people who may be in surveillance video from the night of the shooting to come forward.
“Be vigilant about stepping out against very poor behaving citizens that threaten our city and threaten our citizens,” Mayor Henderson said.
As the tourist season has already started and Art Walk, Taste of Lee, and a marathon are planned for this weekend, local business owners and the mayor want everyone to feel welcome.
“Hey we’re still here, we want you to come downtown,” Lemmerman said. “we want you to just be happy down here like we are.”
