LEE COUNTY — One of two Florida Gulf Coast University students who were victims in a shooting Saturday was arrested on drug charges after deputies searched their San Carlos Park home and found suspected marijuana in the victims’ bedrooms.
Devin Michael Rachles, 21, whose local address is the 18000 block of Sebring Road and is from Englewood, was charged with possession of marijuana with the intent to sell.
According to Lee County Sheriff’s Office reports:
Early Saturday deputies were called to a restaurant’s parking lot in the 9400 block of Daniels Parkway in Fort Myers where they found two men in a Chrysler Fifth Avenue who had gunshot wounds.
Maximilian Von Stober, 22, also of the Sebring Road address, had a gunshot wound above his pelvic area and Rachles was grazed in the neck.
Both men were taken to Lee Memorial Hospital where Rachles was treated and later released. A hospital spokeswoman said Stober was not in the hospital’s directories on Monday.
Two other people, Jonathan Colin Dominguez, 23, of the 18000 block of Rosewood Road, Estero, and Chelsea Morris, 20, also of the Sebring Road address, were in the car. They said they saw the shooting at the Sebring Road address.
The victims told deputies that about midnight four men entered the house, one of whom was armed with a firearm, and demanded drugs and a gun. A struggle ensued and Stober and Rachles were shot.
The four victims got into a car and went north on Interstate 75 to try to find a hospital. They stopped in the parking lot and called deputies.
Deputies went to the Sebring Road house and saw signs of a fight including blood on the floors and wall. They got a search warrant and found signs of narcotic use and sales “throughout the residence including a large amount of marijuana located in two of the bedrooms.”
The downstairs bedroom belongs to Stober, and had a “box with several vacuum sealed bags with marijuana inside.” Stober could not be questioned because of his injuries.
In Rachles’ bedroom, deputies found a box with “more bags of marijuana and paraphernalia.”
The suspects are described as two white and two black men.
Sheriff’s Office spokesman Tony Schall said the incident was not random.
