CCSO is on the scene of a homicide investigation on Turner Street.

CCSO is on the scene of a homicide investigation Monday on Turner Street in Englewood.

A woman who lives at the Englewood home where someone was killed early Monday morning was arrested on an out-of-county warrant charge.

Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to 7129 Turner St. in Englewood around 4:45 a.m. Monday morning after receiving a call from someone inside the residence.

Initial radio dispatch indicated there was a shooting.

Patricia Estarita, 34, who lives at the residence, was arrested Monday after law enforcement ran a check and found that she had an active warrant. She was booked into the Charlotte County Jail.

CCSO has not released further information on the investigation since Monday morning.

The case is extremely active and releasing information could be detrimental to the investigation, a sheriff spokesperson said.

On Tuesday, CCSO deputies were still stationed at the intersections of Turner Street and Cheltenham Avenue and Oceanspray Boulevard Tuesday.

"I think it's over and done with," said 81-year-old Roman Merten who lives on Baylor Street and whose rear property line abuts one of the two only homes on Turner Street.

Merten said his wife, Nancy Massi, woke in the early morning hours Monday to ambulance flashing lights and other lights shining through the trees. The couple, he said, didn't know what happened until they talked to a detective Monday morning.

Merten said all he knew about his neighbor, a man in his late 30s or 40s, was a time they both corralled his neighbor's dogs that got loose once.

Baylor Street residents Dawn Elroe and Stanley Winter also thought whatever happened was a one time, isolated incident.

"I feel safe at night," Winter said. "There's never any problems."
