Lee County is located on the southwest coast of the Florida Peninsula, on the Gulf of Mexico. It was created in 1887 from part of Monroe County, and is named in honor of General Robert E. Lee, commander of the Confederate Army during the Civil War. The county has a total area of 1,212 square miles, with over 35% covered by water, including Tarpon Bay and the Caloosahatchee River Estuary. Across Tarpon Bay, the well-known islands of Sanibel and Captiva are part of Lee County, along with over a dozen additional islands. The population was 618,754 as of the 2010 census. The county is a major tourist destination in the region.

The largest city is Cape Coral, but the county seat is Fort Myers. The city is the spring training home of two major league baseball teams, the Boston Red Sox and Minnesota Twins. Both Henry Ford and Thomas Edison had winter homes in Fort Myers. The fort from which the city takes its name was built during the Seminole Wars in 1850, deserted after the conflict, and then occupied again during the Civil War. Abandoned again after  the war, the first settlers arrived from Key West in 1866. It was incorporated nine years later with 349 residents.

And...you all should know this by know but we’re going to say it again; please do not drive with your four-way flashers on. It is illegal. If you’re unable to see out your windshield due to heavy rain, please pull over into a safe area and wait until the rain lets up enough for you to see.

On Saturday, May 26, Lee County Sheriff’s Office detectives responded to Lehigh Regional Medical Center in reference to a male suffering from a non-life-threatening gunshot wound.

The victim indicated that the injury was self-inflicted, however, hospital staff believed otherwise.

LCSO deputies arrived at the victim’s residence, saw blood on the porch and breached the door. The victim’s wife, Sandra McMillan, was located inside and was incoherent and appeared under the influences of drugs.
She was transported to the ER based on concerns of a possible drug overdose.

Two children, also located inside of the residence, stated that their mother was waiving a gun around when it discharged and struck their father.

The Major Crimes Unit was dispatched to the home to assume the investigation.

Sandra Denise McMillan (W/F DOB 09/24/1982) was subsequently arrested and charged with Kidnapping (Inflict Bodily Harm or Terrorize Victim or other), Obstructing Justice (Tampering in Felony 1st Degree Proceeding), Aggravated Battery (Person uses a Deadly Weapon) and a Weapon Offense (Firing Missile into Dwelling, Vehicle, Building or Aircraft).

All additional information will be issued in the form of a press release update.
