Victim in MLK Blvd. shooting identified as social media influencer

Published: Updated:

The victim of the Martin Luther King Boulevard shooting has been identified as a local social media influencer.

Rasheen Bailey, who was injured in the shooting, is a well-known social media influencer known as Hood Fishing on Instagram.

He was last listed in stable condition.

When we spoke with his mother Friday afternoon, she said he’s actually been able to walk around a bit.

His family told us he competes in fishing tournaments all over the country, even taking first place at one in Oklahoma.

His fishing fame even earned him a sponsorship with Bass Pro.

Based on past reports on WINK News, Bailey was an esteemed football player for Cape Coral High School in 2014.

Also, this isn’t Bailey’s first brush with death. Four years ago, he was targeted in a drive-by shooting in Cape Coral.

The Fort Myers Police Department is asking for anyone with information about this shooting that happened at this intersection.

They are trying to identify the driver of an SUV.
