Man Shot and Killed by Police While Holding Knife and Dismembered Body Part in Fort Myers

FORT MYERS, Fla. – A tragic incident unfolded in Fort Myers, Florida, prompting the placement of a police officer on paid administrative leave. The Fort Myers Police Department took this action after a man was fatally shot for failing to comply with police commands. The man was reportedly holding a knife in one hand and a dismembered body part in the other at the time of the incident.

Authorities responded to a distress call on Sunday night, leading them to Grand Avenue and Waltman Street, where a woman and two children were found hiding in a carport. The woman informed investigators that her husband, Willy Lumaine, was in the process of attacking their roommate at a specific address on Grand Avenue.

Upon arriving at the scene, officers discovered a blood trail and an open door at the residence, signaling a potentially violent situation inside. To ensure the safety of everyone involved, a perimeter was established around the home, and verbal commands were issued in an attempt to locate Lumaine and any possible victims.

Lumaine’s behavior became increasingly alarming as he began breaking through a window with a knife. Despite repeated verbal commands to drop the weapon, he emerged from the window holding the knife and what appeared to be a dismembered body part.

The situation escalated when Lumaine failed to comply with officers’ instructions to drop the knife and was subsequently shot by the police. Medical assistance was provided, but Lumaine succumbed to his injuries on the scene. Police later uncovered the mutilated body of the roommate both inside and outside the residence, confirming a violent attack had taken place. The investigation into this homicide remains active, with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement collaborating with the Fort Myers Police Department to uncover further details surrounding the tragic event.
