Two dead, 20 hurt in shooting outside Florida teen party

Washington Dc—At least two people were killed and 2oothers wounded when a shooting broke out early Monday in the parking lot of a Florida nightclub that was hosting a party for young teenagers.
The shooting comes just six weeks after a gunman killed 49 people at a gay club in the state, the worst massacre on US soil since 9/11.
Officers have detained one “person of interest” and two other individuals for questioning over the latest shooting, which happened at Club Blu in Fort Myers.
Witnesses described people scattering when gunfire broke out shortly after midnight, ducking and running behind a nearby apartment building, with children as young as 13 reportedly among the injured.
“It was a young teen event. There were kids. The kid I was holding in my lap, he was 14 years old that got shot,” Tatian Nouhaioi, a neighbor, told ABC News.
“And then there was a little girl who also got shot and she was 13. One of the security guard’s daughter got shot, so I mean there was kids 13, 14, 15, 16.”
Club Blu said the shooting broke out as the “Swimsuit Glow Party” was winding down and parents were picking up their children.—AFP
