2 dead, 15 injured in new Florida club mass shooting

A nightclub shooting rampage in the US state of Florida has left at least two people dead and 15 others injured.

The incident happened in the early hours of Monday, during what was described as a “teen party” at the Club Blu nightclub in Fort Meyers, Florida, according to Lieutenant Jim Mulligan of the Lee County Sheriff’s Office.

Early reports identified one of the victims as a 14-year-old boy while children as young as 13 were also believed to have been injured.

Police have yet to confirm the motives behind the shooting. Security and rescue teams have swarmed the area.

One suspect was detained in connection with the shooting but it was not clear how many assailants were involved in the incident.

Local media spotted at least dozen evidence markers at the scene of the shooting, indicating a high number of shell casings scattered around.

Early reports mention two other shootings in nearby areas but those have not been confirmed yet.

In June, a similar mass shooting at a nightclub in Orlando, Florida, left at least 49 people dead and 53 others injured.e1dca780-746f-4a06-bd90-5b57024ba1c8
