Lee County Sheriff’s Office arrests Armando Cruz, Robert Moya, Saviok Wood, Mia Perez, Timothy Gibson, Jairo Zelaya

Cody Langford‘s grandfather, 73, and grandmother, 70, were trailering a boat with a truck at around 4:00 a.m. on March 19, 2023 when they were stopped at the intersection of Milwaukee Boulevard and Homestead Road in Lehigh Acres, Lee County, Florida, United States. Hundreds of people blocked the entire intersection off and gathered to street race. 

After breaking away from the larger group at the intersection, several people surrounded the elderly couple’s truck and boat then hit, punched and kicked the truck. Among them are Saviok Wood, 22, Jairo Zelaya, 22, Mia Perez, 20, Robert Moya, 19, Timothy Gibson, 18, and Armando Cruz, 17.


Before the elderly couple was able to drive away, Cruz allegedly shot once the driver’s side window, hitting the couple. Both victims managed to drive away and received medical help at Gulf Coast Hospital in Lehigh Acres.

Langford’s grandmother was released from the hospital later that day. His grandfather remains in the intensive care unit.


On March 20, 2023, Lee County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested Cruz. He was charged with shooting into an occupied conveyance, discharging a firearm in public, being a juvenile with a firearm, occupied burglary to a boat, aggravated rioting, possession of a firearm during a felony, criminal mischief, two counts of attempted murder and two counts of aggravated battery.

This is not the first time Cruz was arrested. On July 30, 2022, LCSO deputies arrested him, Jermiah Perez, 17, and a girl, 17.

The girl filmed Cruz and Perez while the two boys were assaulting a wheelchair-bound man, 55, of North Fort Myers, Lee County outside of Farmer Jacks Market on Laurel Lane in North Myers. She also helped the two boys flee after the attack.

On March 21, 2023, the LCSO arrested Moya and Woods, who were each charged with aggravated rioting. On March 22, 2023, the LCSO arrested Perez, Gibson and Zelaya, who were each charged with aggravated rioting and racing on highways, street takeovers and stunt driving while filming.

Anyone with information about the shooting of Cody Langford’s grandparents is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS. A GoFundMe has been created for the victims.
