Cape Coral police are investigating an incident where someone shot a gun at an employee at the Coral Oaks Golf Course on Sunday.

The victim told police he arrived at work after 4 a.m. and came out of the garage on a lawnmower when he noticed a vehicle by hole 18, according to Officer Brandon Sancho, a Cape Coral police public information officer.

The employee said the driver of the vehicle fired two shots toward him and then began driving north towards the exit/entrance of the golf course, at 1800 Northwest 28th Ave.

The employee said as he was following the vehicle he realized that a man was running near him trying to catch up to the suspect’s vehicle.

The employee said the man entered the vehicle and before the vehicle could flee, the driver shot at him twice, then fled north on NW 28th Avenue.

No one was injured and there have been no arrests.

People in the area are worried about the shooting.

“This has a really neighborhood feel to it,” said Tim McGraw. “It’s quiet. And I really, really hope this is you know isolated, one-time event. Yeah I mean I was shocked and just trying to understand why something like that would happen.”

Cape Coral police have not released descriptions of the men or any surveillance images.

Sancho said the incident remains under investigation.
