At least two people were killed and more than a dozen others injured in a shooting outside of a Florida nightclub early Monday, officials said.
The gunshots were fired in the parking lot of Club Blu in Fort Myers at around 12:30 a.m. ET.
Fort Myers Police Department said in a statement that “at least 14-16 people” were wounded in the shooting, with their injuries ranging from minor to life-threatening. NBC station WBBH reported that both of those killed were male.

Three people were detained for questioning early Monday.
Earlier, officers said three people left the scene in a car with two later fleeing the vehicle, according to WBBH reporter Gabrielle Shirley.
