Fordson Park Scene of Shots Fired

LABELLE, FL. (May 21, 2005) -- While, details have yet to be released by
the Hendry Sheriff's office, Hendry county deputies chased a dark colored
Oldsmobile to Lee county's Charleston Park subdivision near Alva at about
7:45 Saturday night looking for a shooting suspect. Deputies were called to
the Fordson Park in LaBelle where a reported shooting took place and a
large crowd had gathered. On arrival the suspects were reportedly seen
traveling at high speed toward Alva on SR80 and a Hendry deputy took chase.
The shooting victim had fled from the area.
The car sought was later identified as belonging to Lorenzo Douglas of
23071 Avenue D in the Charleston Park subdivision in Lee county. As the
deputy waited for backup from Lee county and the arrival of another Hendry
deputy, he spotted suspects waiting outside an apartment building at 23220
Avenue A. While the Hendry deputy waited on backup, the suspects apparently
went into an apartment. Lee deputies arrived and presumably grabbed the
suspects but the Sheriff's department has not released any information .
Noted during the incident by a Hendry Sheriff's supervisor was the
efficient work done by the Hendry Sheriff's office dispatcher who was able
to coordinate the Lee Sheriff's office and Hendry deputies on scene to
quickly lead officers to the suspects.
