A terrifying shooting occurred at a nightclub in Florida early this morning. What we know is that two people were murdered and 17 left injured, four of them seriously injured. Sadly, one victim was only twelve years old. Everything occurred at a teen party inside a club called Club Blu in Fort Myers Florida. Police have three people in custody and deemed the area safe. Now we can let all of the anti-gun supporters wine about gun control…great.

FMPD confirms that the shooting occurred in Club Blu’s parking lot.
Witnesses describe the moments outside the club as a “madhouse.” There were reports of gunshots and people poured out of the nightclub, a witness said. One woman who lives two blocks from Club Blu said she heard about 30 gunshots from what she believes to have been multiple guns.
When she arrived, people were crying and screaming as others were being carried away in ambulances to Lee Memorial and other area hospitals.
“It was unbelievable,” she wrote via Facebook.
The shooting came more than a month after a nightclub shooting in Orlando that was the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history. The shooting at the Pulse nightclub on June 12 left 49 victims dead and 53 others wounded.
The violence at Club Blu erupted about 12:30 a.m. Monday, Mulligan said. As many as 17 people were shot, and there were two active crime scenes, police said. Several hours later a street in the area remained closed as police investigated.
The names of the victims were not immediately available. Police are still in search of others who may be involved in the incident. Things are only going to get worse as we near the election, criminals and terrorists know Obama is too lax with our laws, and they can get away with a lot.
