FORT MYERS, Fla. — A man was arrested Wednesday after a gun sale gone wrong.

Kali Gumbo Jackson, of 14019 St. Kitts Drive, is accused of robbing a gun owner who had arranged to sell him a $1,400 shotgun and a $900 rifle Dec. 20. The encounter took place in broad daylight in the parking lot of the Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant at The Forum on 9390 Dynasty Drive, the Fort Myers Police Department said.

Jackson and another suspect pulled out their own gun and ordered the seller, 48-year-old David Brandy, to the ground before driving off with his guns, according to police.

The other suspect remains at large.

The Fort Myers Police Departments Gang Suppression Unit, which Chief Derrick Diggs credited for preventing “probably about five mass shooting incidents” last year, investigated the case. Officers recovered two assault rifles and one semi-automatic handgun at the apartment where they found Jackson, they said.

Jackson, who faces multiple theft and weapons-related charges, was taken into custody one day shy of his 21st birthday. He remains in jail on $65,000 bond.
