A Fort Myers man was sentenced to 23 years in prison for a violent incident outside a grocery store in 2019.

Frederick Domaine Johnson, 44, received 20 years for one count of aggravated battery with a firearm and three years for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

The sentences are to be served consecutively. Johnson was found guilty following a trial in Lee County in February.

In July 2019, Johnson confronted a man who walked past him at the D&D Convenience Store in Fort Myers and threatened him with a gun. The victim put his hands up and knelt in front of Johnson, who then kicked him in the face.

The victim left the store but Johnson followed him out and shot the man in the leg. The victim tried to leave and Johnson shot his car multiple times. The Fort Myers Police Department handled the investigation.

Assistant State Attorney Marilla Shoemaker prosecuted the case.
