Beach Shooter Sentenced


Jatavion Craig will spend 18 months in prison after he plead guilty for firing a handgun on Fort Myers Beach. The Memorial Day incident led to a 3-day manhunt with Craig eventually being found and arrested in Alabama,

Craig will also be on probation for 36 months when he’s released and he must complete 100 hours of community, anger management classes and forfeit any firearms.

Nobody was hurt in the incident. Craig picture, with the gun in his hand, was plastered all over social media and circulated by the Lee County Sheriff’s Department. As deputies swarmed the area after receiving the 911 calls, Craig melted into the crowd and escaped immediate capture.


  1. I think a Half Way House with a JOB would have been better than a Prison where they become harder and more angry! Teach them civility at the Half Way House!
