This is the country we live in now — a place where mass shootings are just an “everyday” occurrence.
Neighbors in San Carlos Park didn’t hear the gunshots. It might have been hours or maybe days before anyone realized what had happened, if not for the 911 call about 2:25 a.m. from a Spanish-speaking man inside the home. By the time Lee County deputies arrived to the home at 17372 Phlox Drive, the 36-year-old man, his two daughters, their older sister and their 29-year-old mother were dead.
Lee Sheriff Mike Scott described the killings as murder-suicide, saying the father had left a note. He declined to comment on the contents of the note, citing the active investigation. He said the audio from the 911 call would be released publicly during the investigation.
