Prison Sentence for Violent Attack at Grocery Store

Frederick Domaine Johnson, 44, of Fort Myers, was sentenced to 23 years in prison for a violent
incident at a grocery store in 2019. Johnson was sentenced to 20 years in prison for one count of
Aggravated Battery with a Firearm and 3 years in prison for Possession of a Firearm by a
Convicted Felon. The sentences are to be served consecutively. Johnson was found guilty
following a trial in Lee County in February.

In July 2019, Johnson confronted a man who walked past him in a grocery store in Fort Myers
and threatened him with a gun. The victim put his hands up and knelt in front of Johnson, who
then kicked him in the face.

The victim left the store but Johnson followed him out and shot the man in the leg. The victim
tried to leave and Johnson shot his car multiple times. The Fort Myers Police Department
handled the investigation.

Assistant State Attorney Marilla Shoemaker prosecuted the case.
