Two people were killed and over a dozen were wounded early Monday at a mass shooting at a Florida nightclub.
At least 16 people were shot when a gunman who opened fire at around 12:30 a.m. during a “swimsuit glow party” event geared towards teens at Club Blu in Fort Meyers, authorities said.
Some of the victims were as young as 12 years old, according to Cherly Garn of Lee Memorial Health System.
“Upon arrival, officers located several victims suffering from gunshot wounds,” the Fort Myers Police Department said in a statement. “Injuries ranged from minor to life threatening.
Three suspects have been taken into custody, Capt. Jim Mulligan of the Fort Myers Police Department told WINK-TV, adding that there were two other active crime scenes–one, on Parkway Street, where a gunman shot at area homes and cars, and another where at least one person of interest was detained.
Witnesses described a chaotic scene, with a stampede out of the southwestern Florida club after a man outside yelled, and then opened fire.
Witness Tatianna Nouhaioi told ABC News that said she cradled one of the young victims in her lap.
“It was a young teen event. There were kids. The kid I was holding in my lap, he was 14 years old that got shot,” she told the network. “And then there was a little girl who also got shot and she was 13. One of the security guard’s daughter got shot, so I mean there was kids 13, 14, 15, 16. It was a young kids event.
Victim Timothy Settles posted a Facebook live video of himself from the hospital, writing, ” I don’t wanna die.”
