Another mass shooting is rocking Florida. Two people were killed and at least 16 wounded after a shooting took place outside of a Fort Myers nightclub Monday morning.
Police responded to the incident at around 12:30 a.m., where they found "several victims suffering from gunshot sounds," Captain Jim Mulligan of the Fort Myers Police Department said in a statement.
"The scene is still very active as investigators and crime scene personnel attempt to determine what had occurred," Mulligan said. "The Police Department is attempting to determine a motive for this incident."
While three people have been detained by authorities for questioning, the police are still "actively canvassing the area looking for other persons who may be involved in this incident." Police are currently investigating two other incidents, one on Ortiz Avenue and another on Parkway Street. Police believe both are connected to the nightclub shooting.

Lee Memorial Hospital said in a statement that 16 were treated for injuries. One person died at the hospital. A Facebook flyer revealed the party was a "Swimsuit Glow Party" with no identification necessary to enter. The ages of the victims range from 12 to 27.
The shooting comes after 49 people were killed when Omar Mateen opened fire at an Orlando nightclub in early June.
