A shooting at a Florida nightclub has left two people dead with another 14 injured, according NBC.

Although little is known about the suspects at this time, three of them have been detained while another is said to still be on the run. 

The shooting took place at Club Blu in Fort Myers, Florida at around 12:30am on July 25th. Reports state that the attack was carried out on a teen night with victims ranging form ages 12 to 27. According to the flyer for the event, it was called "Swimsuit Glow Party" and no identification was required to get into the club, which means it was an all-ages event.

"We are deeply sorry for all involved," the club declared in a Facebook post following the incident.

"We tried to give the teens WHAT WE THOUGHT WAS A SAFE PLACE TO HAVE A GOOD TIME. Ages 12-17. There was armed security as well as full security, inside and out. As the club was closing and parents were picking their children up.....that's when all this took place. There was nothing more we could of done az you see it was not kids at the party that did this despicable act."

According to CNN, Police did not specify how many shots were fired, but 36 yellow evidence markers were placed around the venue.

"It was chaos. I saw a bunch of people running across the street," said Jermaine Wilson, a resident of the area. "It's incredible that this can happen at a teenage (event)."
