Two people were shot dead at a nightclub in Fort Myers Florida early Monday morning, and at least 15 were injured.
Lee Memorial Hospital issued a statement to CBS news saying the victims ranged from the ages of 12 to 27.
“The numbers, they’re sort of fluctuating. We have multiple hospitals calling in. We’re trying to confirm. So, 15 to 17. We do have two confirmed dead,” Capt. Jim Mulligan of the Fort Myers Police Department told local CBS affiliate WINK-TV. “Officers arrived on scene. Found multiple people suffering from various levels of gunshot wounds. EMS was called, multiple units responded. Helped triage transport multiple people from the scene.”
The attack comes in the wake of a terrorist attack at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Fla., killing 49 and injuring many more.
