East Naples gunshot victim identified

A man who was shot Friday night in East Naples has been identified as Cameron Divonte Childs, 19, according to an incident report released Monday.

Reports said Childs was shot outside the Heron Park Apartments on Scrub Oak Circle around 8 p.m. He was flown to Lee Memorial Hospital from a nearby Home Depot parking lot with serious injuries.

A woman who was with Childs told 911 dispatchers that someone “jumped” Childs and “I know who it was.” As of Monday afternoon, however, Sheriff’s Office officials said they had not yet arrested anyone and still were investigating.

Lee Memorial Hospital did not have a patient named Cameron Childs on Monday, according to staff. Childs could not immediately be reached for comment.

Reports did not indicate anything that would suggest a possible motive.
