Lehigh Acres Love Triangle Leads to Shot Fired
A Florida man learned that jealousy and heartbreak can be dangerous after an incident Monday in Lehigh Acres. A love triangle confrontation led to a man’s life being threatened and a shot fired through his car. NBC-2 reports that a bullet went through the victim’s rear driver-side door.
The victim said he was parked along Owen Avenue South in Lehigh Acres when he recognized a silver Mercedes parked a few yards away. The Lee County Sheriff’s Office said the victim also thought he saw his ex-girlfriend. When the victim attempted to get closer to the car, the Mercedes took off. The victim followed the Mercedes westbound on State Road 82 for a few blocks until both cars pulled over.
The victim spotted his ex-girlfriend in the passenger seat of the Mercedes and her new boyfriend was driving. When the victim pulled up, the driver of the Mercedes pulled out a gun and threatened to kill the victim. One shot was fired and the bullet went through the rear door.
The victim told a deputy the “new boyfriend” was the same guy his ex cheated with, causing their breakup. The car and bullet were taken as evidence.
