On Monday, May 11th, Naples City Police Officer Lacy was dispatched to a disturbance call. While Officer Lacy was speaking with the male subject on the front lawn of a home, the subject produced a rifle and fired it in Officer Lacy’s direction.

Officer Lacy prepared to return fire but the subject fled to a ravine at the rear of the property. The subjects mother advised officer lacy that the subject believed that “someone was out to kill him.”

Other Officers arrived on scene to assist and secured a large perimeter around the wooded ravine. Due to circumstances, law enforcement took extra precautions to avoid provoking a confrontation with the subject. A helicopter from the Department of Public Safety was requested to give an aerial view of the subject’s location.

The subject was found lying motionless in the bottom of a wooded creek at approximately 1:21 PM. The subject had died from a gunshot wound.

The individual is believed to have self-inflicted the wound. No law enforcement officers fired any shots throughout the incident. The name of the subject has not been released at this time.
