Two people have been confirmed dead and 16 others injured after a yet to be identified person opened fire at a nightclub in the Florida city of Fort Myers in the early hours of today July 25th.
The night club was hosting a party for teenagers when the incident occurred. Children as young as 13 years were believed to have been caught in the shooting. Sky News quoted one witness as saying that she heard around 30 gunshots from the scene and believed that these came from a number of weapons. A 14-year-old boy was reportedly one of the victims killed.
