Police give description of suspect in ZombiCon shooting

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — The latest on the ZombiCon shooting that killed one, wounded five others in Fort Myers (all times local):

11:40 a.m.

Police are giving a description of the suspect in the weekend shooting at a ZombiCon event in Florida.

Fort Myers police said Monday that they are looking for a white or possibly Hispanic male in his late teens or early 20s who was wearing a black T-shirt and a flat-billed black and red ball cap. Police say he was seen firing a black semi-automatic handgun.

Police also said they had received a video of the ZombieCon event and that they are scrutinizing it heavily.

The video shows people dressed up as zombies, with fake blood and makeup, walking around downtown before four gunshots ring out. People scream when they hear the gunfire and start running in all directions.
