Man faces life in prison for 2017 Fort Myers strip club murder

Posted: Updated:

A 23-year-old man is facing life in prison after being found guilty of killing a man outside of a Fort Myers strip club last year.

Kahleel Jacques Perez, 23, shot and killed a 34-year-old man after an argument escalated in the parking lot of Scarlett's Cabaret in Fort Myers, according to the State Attorney's Office.

The argument began when the victim and his friend were trying to leave the club. Three men, one being Perez, started hitting their car in the parking lot before the victim and his passenger got out of the vehicle. Eventually, Perez shot the victim who later died at the hospital.

Perez will be sentenced on Nov. 26.
