On Saturday, February 23, 2013 at 11:45 p.m. officers responded to Lee Memorial Hospital located at 2776 Cleveland Avenue in reference to a female patient that had arrived in their emergency room suffering from a gunshot wound. Physicians pronounced Kanasha Isaac (d.o.b. 8-30-1996 of Immokalee) clinically deceased but she remained on a life support system. The witnesses who drove Isaac to the hospital stayed on scene to speak to police about the crime.

Police learned that the witnesses along with the victim got into their car after eating at the Ale House located at 4400 Kernal Circle. Soon after, a car pulled up in front of them blocking them in their parking space.
