FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - A year has passed since the fatal shooting of a patron and the wounding of several others at a Zombie-themed festival in southwest Florida, but there still have been no arrests.

The News-Press of Fort Myers (https://newspr.es/2eh1ly3 ) reports that Fort Myers detectives have interviewed hundreds of witnesses and examined hundreds of images and videos, but the killing at last year’s Zombicon street festival is still unsolved.

Crime Stoppers has received 150 tips.

The one-year anniversary of the shootings is Monday.

Police believe someone fired shots into the crowd in Fort Myers during the festival which attracted as many as 20,000 people.

One of the victims, 20-year-old Expavious Tyrell Taylor, died at the scene. Five others were wounded.
