One month after the tragic Orlando nightclub deaths, which have since been swept away by a series of increasingly more escalating, disturbing and deadly mass shooting assaults in Europe, moments ago newswires reported that at least two people were killed and "at least 14-16" wounded during in a shooting at a Florida nightclub, police said early Monday. According to NBC, the incident happened during a "teen night" in the parking lot of Club Blu in Fort Myers at around 12:30 a.m. ET.

Of the 16 people taken to Lee Memorial Hospital, one died after being admitted and two others were in the intensive-care unit as of early Monday. One other person was confirmed killed in the incident, according to police.

The victims were aged between 12 and 27, hospital spokeswoman Cheryl Garn said in a statement. NBC station WBBH reported that both of those killed were male. Shots were also fired — lightly injuring another person — five blocks away from the nightclub, police said.

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

The scene has been described as “a mad house” and there have been reports of gunshots as people were exiting the nightclub, according to Wink News, a television station based in Fort Myers. Another witness says that she heard around 30 gunshots from the scene and believes that these came from a number of weapons.

According to NBC, police say that the scene is still active and they are searching for suspects in two locations in the city.  A total of three people have been detained in connection with the nightclub shooting, while police say they are trying to determine a motive for the shooting in the parking lot.

Earlier, officers said three people left the scene in a car with two later fleeing the vehicle, according to WBBH reporter Gabrielle Shirley. Shirley reported that "a big crowd of people scattered everywhere taking cover" when the gunshots rang out.

She added that an employee at the club was too shocked to speak. "He was just shaking his head, and through tears giving me the indication again that this is a very, very traumatic experience here, he could not even form words," Shirley added.

Before detaining the trio, authorities said the Fort Myers Police Department and Lee County Sheriff's Office were "actively canvassing the area looking for other persons who may be involved in this incident."

According to Lt. Jim Mulligan of the Lee County Sheriff’s Office two people have been killed, while as many as 17 people have been injured.

Onlookers said they could see people screaming, while others were being taken away in ambulances. One man said one of his friends was at the club when the shooting took place.

“I called and couldn’t get a hold of them, I rushed to Blu scared when I arrived I got one of them and he said that the shooter took off and the cops where chasing him,” he wrote on Facebook, as cited by Wink News.

“It was a mad house people were running everywhere. All people were saying was their friends’ names to see if they’re okay — a lot of phone calls to parents,” he wrote. “But it was one of the scariest sights to just see people come pouring out like that.”

Eagerly awaiting for the WaPo to tell us its time to show "solidarity" with our Muslim "friends and neighbors"

Drivebys take place every weekend.  But we never hear about them because they don't fit Obama's narrative.

This is getting out of hand people!! Our country is spiralling into chaos because conservatives refuse to allow simple sensible gun control laws that would take guns out of the hands of terrorists and criminals and save lives! Even if it saves one life, it's worth it! Lives are more important than ancient documents and the wild west fantasies of right wingers!! It's got to the point where I no longer think we should cower to republicans on this issue and obediently follow the 'law' - Obama needs to ban guns by executive order before he leaves office! I hope to God that we get Hillary in the white house, so that we can put an end to this madness once and for all! I pray every day that she triumphs over the hatred and sexism that is hurled at her every day, and gets the Presidency that she deserves and has fought for, for so many years.

WHY IT’S PATRIOTIC TO SPEND

It's like a carefully programmed robot. Somebody please program this robot with the fact that there are no conservatives, liberals, republicans, democrats, islamic radicals, useful idiots of Putin, etc, etc. It's just the Ancient Group of Assholes (AGA) vs. us.

I'm new to the comments of ZH... so is this million dollar bonus guy serious? Is it a bot that regurgitates official narratives and enforced perceptions of reality? Have I been trolled???

MDB is insane.  Read his 'accredited news' blogs and you will see what I mean.  He says things like 'I hope to god' but he is an atheist.  He has no conception of natural rights, or rule of law.  He is unable to connect any dots whatsoever.  A total nanny-state parrot.  Just another useful tool for TPTB.

Uh, I think he's satire.

Jeffersonian Liberal's picture

Everyone here did.

Until he admitted flat out that it is not satire.

When a writer is suspected of being a satirist states that his writing his not satire, readers need to take the writer's word at face value, especially if the writing was so weak the readers could not tell definitely whether the writing was satire. For writing to be satire, the readers need to know with certainty that it is satire, otherwise it could just be writing that horribly states an actual position or weak propaganda.

Intense satire. Once in a while there's a hint of it.

I read his words and then take it to mean the exact opposite.  You might loosely call it sarcasm.

 

If you look at it that way, it's not so bad.  It just illustrates how silly and incoherent the arguments of the left are.

You don’t need a gun to pull off a mass slaughter at a densely packed night club; a couple of gallons of gasoline will do the trick.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Happy_Land_fire

The illusion the gun abolitionists are selling is that they can make you safe by disarming me.  This is simply a propaganda effort to end any form of active resistance to their police state.  This is not about making the people safe.  It is and always has been about making the people defenseless.   

 

The oligarchs tentatively control both public and private armies.  Individuals like Bloomberg believe they do not need the protection of the second amendment.  They fear the people because they live under the illusion that they control the state.  They believe their Pretorian Guards will protect them from the disenfranchised and dispossed.  They have never researched the history of private security coups.  Once the rule of law is publicly accepted as dead, there is nothing more dangerous than a cabal of colonels. After a military coup, twits like Bloomberg will be marched off to the closest gulag.  The sad thing is the rest of us will be marching right along with him.

You are the very example of human scum that is driving our species to extinction, a moral prostitute that sells your character and integrity for political and financial gain, using lies and false concepts to foster your groups genocidal agenda.
"Why is patriotic to spend"
The anwser that matters here is "Why is human to save and invest, and to hold a gun, so that you can defend those you love."
Wish i could hate cowards like you, but you aren´t worth even my despise.

May knowledge set us free.

If you want Hillary in the White House, then you need to pray to Satan. God wants us to be able to defend ourselves from a tyrannical government, and not live in FEAR. Do you also propose "sensible" machete, bomb, and truck laws?

"I hope to God that we get Hillary in the white house, so that we can put an end to this madness once and for all! I pray every day that...."

Being the religious person that you are, you do know Killary is pro abortion, right? 

azusgm's picture

At least two persons who left the satanic priesthood have stated publicly that satanists use abortions in their blood rituals because killing a human before birth is not illegal. Satanists in Michigan even staged a milk bathing ritual across the street from the Detroit Planned Parenthood in opposition to a protest by pro-lifers. There was a rally in Austin, Texas in support of Wendy Davis during her HB2 filibuster in 2011. Women were yelling "Hail Satan." in support of abortion.

No surprise at all that Hillary Clinton is pro abortion.
