A shooting on Homestead Road South and Milwaukee Boulevard was confirmed by the Lee County Sheriff's Office and neighbors heard the gunshots. Then, a week later, a woman was attacked by a pair of dogs on Starnes Avenue in Fort Myers and is still in the hospital. The Lee County Sheriff's Office also received a message from a concerned citizen regarding a possible deceased dog. Amidst all this tragedy, there is one bright spot: Kelvis Maiguel's Ceberino's Hot Dogs & More restaurant in Lehigh Acres.
On Tuesday, Kelvis Maiga was shot but has since left the operating room and is in the ICU. His brother confirmed the news and a post on the Facebook page of the hot dog stand said he is being kept sedated. If you're ever in New York, be sure to check out Joe's hot dog stand. According to a police report, an officer saw Maiquel working at the stand with his girlfriend.
