The name of the victim has not been released pending notification of kin.
Ryan Robert Doyon (DOB 12-18-1989) was arrested and charged with second-degree murder.
Doyon is no stranger to law enforcement. A resident of SE 19 Place, one house away from the location of the victim, Doyon has five prior arrests in Lee County including, but not limited to, Aggravated Assault with Deadly Weapon (two counts), Possession of Bulletproof Vest during Certain Offenses (two counts), Violation of Domestic Violence Injunction, DUI, Petit Theft and Grand Larceny.
While little is known, at this time, the Cape Coral Police Department is on scene on the 1900 block of Cornwallis Parkway. CCPD responded to a morning call for service involving a shooting.
According to Corporal Philip Mullen, Cape Coral PD Public Affairs Officer, one victim has been transported to the hospital with undisclosed injuries. Mullen was unable to provide the age or gender of the victim.
Residents should expect significant police activity for the remainder of Monday morning and for several afternoon hours as the investigation is ongoing.
Mullen indicated that there is no immediate threat to the public. He intimated that the incident may have begun indoors and “spilled outside.” Several homes are taped off as forensic evidence appears to be in multiple locations.
Corporal Mullen was uncertain but validated a neighbor’s claim to hear approximately ten shots fired. “That’s entirely possible based on the amount of evidence we have on surrounding houses.”
The Lee Herald is awaiting additional information from the Cape Coral Police Department and will provide updates upon receipt.
