(FORT MYERS, Fla.) — Police are searching for a gunman who opened fire at a Florida zombie-themed convention, a shooting that left one person dead and four others hospitalized.
The shooting occurred Saturday at ZombiCon in Fort Myers, which had been expected to attract about 20,000 zombie-lovers. The gunshots sent throngs of revelers dressed like zombies fleeing for their lives, with fake blood from costumes apparently adding to the confusion.
Expavious Tyrell Taylor, 20, a junior college football player, was killed in the shooting, authorities said.
Police are asking ZombiCon attendees to turn over pictures and cellphone video in hopes that the visual elements can help them track down anyone responsible.
