Woman shoots at suspects in South Fort Myers home invasion

When a woman saw three men break into her bedroom window late Friday night, she took out a gun and fired several times.

It didn’t stop the men, though. They came in through the window of her South Fort Myers home, and after a struggle, they tied her hands then took off with money and jewelry.

It all happened sometime before 11:40 p.m. Friday, and detectives were still looking for the suspects Saturday.

The woman, who is in her 20s, was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

She shares the home at 6770 Briarcliff Road with her boyfriend, but she was alone at the time of the break-in.

Det. Michael Hollow said it isn’t clear why the woman’s home was targeted, and he also said this was the first incident of the kind he has heard of in South Fort Myers this year.

“Home invasions don’t happen that often,” he said.
