Another nightclub shooting has ended in tragedy, as two people are dead and at least 14 are injured following a shooting outside of a Fort Myers, Fla. nightclub.

According to CNN, the shooting occurred in the parking lot of the Club Blu Bar and Grill at approximately 12:30 a.m. early Monday morning. The deceased have not yet been publicly identified, and three adults have reportedly been detained by the police, who are still trying to determine what happened.
