Deadly shooting in Cape Coral, police searching for gunman

By Eric Maze. CREATED Jan 4, 2014 - UPDATED: Jan 4, 2014

CAPE CORAL - Cape Coral police are looking for the person responsible for the city's first homicide of 2014.

Police say they responded to a shots fired call just afer 4 a.m. Saturday at 4021 SE 12th Ave. and found a man who had received multiple gunshot wounds in the parking lot at the address.  The man died at the scene.  His name won't be released until police notify relatives.

Officers do not have a suspect and they are now looking for evidence and talking to neighbors in hopes of learning more about what happened.  Investigators do not believe this was a random act.

"Preliminary indications are that this was not a random act.  Our officers are working tirelessly to identify a suspect and make an arrest in this case. While we have not identified a suspect in this case as of yet, we do not believe that there is an immediate danger to the public at large at this time," according to Det. Sergeant Dana Coston, Cape Coral Police Department Public Affairs Officer.

Fox 4 has a crew gathering more information and will bring you the latest details as they become available.
