Fort myers shooting

There has been ANOTHER mass shooting at a Florida nightclub – where last night, two people are dead and 14 are injured.

Details are still coming in, but the shooting happened at an event for children under 18. The incident occurred at the Club Blu Bar and Grill in Fort Myers, Florida.

This is tragic!

Via USA Today:

Fort Myers police first received reports of shots fired at the Club Blu parking lot after midnight, according to a news release. They responded around 12:30 a.m. to the club.

Soon after that, police responded to two other locations that they believe are tied to the shooting: about a half-mile away where a residence and several cars had been shot at, and another location roughly six miles away where they picked up a person of interest.

So far, three people have been arrested in connection with the shooting.

According to multiple reports, the club provided armed security in an attempt to keep the venue safe.

The New York Times reports that the scene is still active:

At “this time, the scene is still very active as investigators and crime scene personnel attempt to determine what had occurred,” Captain Mulligan said. “The Police Department is attempting to determine a motive for this incident.”

The authorities were searching two other sites in the city — one on Parkway Street, where a home and several vehicles were shot at, with one person injured, and another on Ortiz Avenue, where three people were detained for questioning.

This is a breaking news story. More details as they come in.
