Florida shootingTwo people have been killed and 16 more people have been injured at a Florida nightclub.

 

The shooting took place at a nightclub in Fort Myers, Florida. The attack happened around 00:30 (04:30 GMT) on Monday at Club Blu. The nightclub was hosting a party for the teenagers.

 

Three people have been arrested for it.

 

Officers found more than a dozen victims suffering from bullet wounds, some of them life-threatening. The victims were reported to be between 12 and 27.

 

The more seriously injured victims were taken to local hospitals, police said in the statement. Other victims went to hospitals for treatment on their own.

 

Shots were also fired — lightly injuring another person — five blocks away from the nightclub, police said.

 

Syreeta Gary, whose daughter was at the club, told the media that, she has to thank God that her daughter is ok, because her daughter could have been shot. She also added that it’s ridiculous that these kids have to go through this, they can’t enjoy themselves because there are other people who have criminalistic minds – they just want to terrorise things.

 

Marshall Bland said his 23-year-old son’s stomach was grazed by a bullet, but he has since been released from the hospital.

 

Shots were also fired at a home and a vehicle, where one person suffered a minor injury.

 

Bland said he is thankful for the police officers who have detained three people of interest.

 

Police turned away workers arriving for their jobs at businesses around Club Blu.

 

In a statement by Club Blu on its Facebook page, the club said it was “deeply sorry for all involved.”
