Law enforcement: 2 dead, as many as 17 shot at Fort Myers nightclub

FORT MYERS, Fla. – Two people are dead, according to the Fort Myers Police Department, and as many as 17 people were shot, according to Lt. Jim Mulligan of the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, at a local nightclub, Club Blu located at 3580 Evans Avenue, early Monday morning.

There are two active scenes after the shooting at the nightclub, which was hosting a teen party.

The victims have not yet been identified by authorities.

Witnesses describe the scene as a “mad house.” 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 hospital.

“It was unbelievable,” she wrote via Facebook.

One man said a close friend was at the club at the time of the shooting.

“I called and couldn’t get a hold of them, I rushed to Blu scared when I arrived I got one of them and he said that the shooter took of and the cops where chasing him,” he wrote via Facebook.

He said he was struck by the large number of people desperately calling out the names of their loved ones outside the club.

“It was a mad house people were running every where. All people were saying was their friends’ names to see if they’re okay — a lot of phone calls to parents,” he wrote. “But it was one of the scariest sights to just see people come pouring out like that.”

This witness then rushed to the hospital, where he said as many as 75 other people were waiting, just hoping to hear that their loved one was going to make it.
