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.
