A shooting at Club Blu in Fort Myers, Florida has ended in at least two deaths and as many as 17 injured. The shooting took place outside the club on early Monday morning. Three people have been arrested for the shooting at Club Blu and another shooting at some residences half-an-hour later.
Our thoughts are with the victims and their families.
Police responded to a reported shooting outside the Club Blu nightclub early Monday AM. Officers arrived on the scene and found multiple people suffering from various levels of gunshot wounds. Emergency Medical Services were called and helped transport victims from the scene to Lee Memorial Hospital.
Half an hour later, a witness to another shooting told Fox 4 that a black SUV had pulled up on some Parkway residences and began shooting at random homes. Fox 4 reporters allegedly counted 30 shell casings in the area. It’s believed that the two shootings are related.
A flyer for Sunday’s party at Club Blu shows that it was a “swimsuit glow party” that didn’t require ID because it was a teen party.
Who Was Involved?
Police say that they have arrested a total of three people in connection with the shooting. Authorities say that they’re still trying to determine a motive.
