This is a weird target.
I wonder if the person thought they were real zombies? Or did they do this for some ideological reason? It clearly wasn’t personal – he didn’t know these people. Maybe it was a Black (I can’t find a description)? Not sure why a even a Black would do this though.
It will be an interesting story to watch if they catch the shooter.
Chaos broke out at a zombie-themed street festival in downtown Fort Myers, Florida, after shooting left one man dead and five other people wounded.
Crowds of festivalgoers fled screaming through the streets after the shots rang out late Saturday at ZombiCon.
“It cleared out fast and cop cars and ambulances came,” said Savannah Holden, who watched the panic unfold from a hotel balcony.
One man died of a gunshot wound at the scene, police said, and five other people suffered non-life-threatening injuries. Four of them were taken to Lee Memorial Hospital for treatment.
There were initial reports that four people were wounded, but police said Sunday that they found another shooting victim who had refused medical attention.
The man killed was identified as Expavious Tyrell Taylor, 20, of Okeechobee, Florida, said Lt. Victor Medico with the Fort Myers Police Department.
Detectives have been canvassing the area for witnesses, authorities said, asking anyone with information on what happened to call the Fort Myers police.
