Joan Isaac Roblero, 17, of 1991 Sunshine Blvd., Naples, is charged with shooting a deadly missile into a dwelling, discharge of a firearm from a vehicle, possession of a firearm by a minor, and resisting arrest.

Santiago Ruiz Del Rio, 17, of 4190 Washington Lane, Naples, is charged with discharge of a firearm from a vehicle, possession of a firearm by a minor, and resisting arrest.

Bryan Velazsquez Soto, 15, of 4220 Washington Lane, Unit 106, Naples, is charged with resisting arrest, possession of marijuana under 20 grams, and possession of narcotic equipment.

Detectives said Roblero, Ruiz Del Rio, and Velazsquez Soto participated in a planned drive-by shooting of a residence on 23rd Court Southwest. The house was the target of a previous drive-by shooting in June, according to arrest reports.


Arrest reports say surveillance videos from yesterday show a 2017 white BMW sedan driving by the victim residence multiple times and initiate the shooting while the occupants of the residence take cover.

Witnesses saw the three teens crawl from the wreckage of the BMW after it had crashed about 350 feet from where the shots were fired. Witnesses said some of the teens were armed with guns as they ran toward 50th Terrace Southwest.

A fourth individual was also seen fleeing the car. He had been shot in the face and shoulder and sought help at a nearby residence. He was later transported to a hospital in Lee County for treatment.

Deputies, assisted by K9, Aviation and Drone units, located Roblero, Ruiz Del Rio, and Velazsquez Soto following an extensive search and took them into custody. The teens were booked into the Collier County jail and remanded to the custody of the state Department of Juvenile Justice.


Further investigation by deputies revealed the BMW was reported stolen out of the City of Naples on Thursday.

This shooting incident continues to be an active investigation. Detectives say this was an isolated incident and the community at large is not in danger.
