Not even 45 days since the Orlando massacre that shocked the country, another nightclub shooting has taken place, this time in Fort Myers, Florida at an all-ages party that has left two dead and an untold number injured.
According to reports, at least 16 were injured and that number is expected to rise as an investigation into the incident is underway.

The shooting took place at Club Blu near 12:30 a.m. Monday morning (June 25) during what is being described as a “swimsuit glow party” with performances.
Victims, per a hospital spokesman, range in ages from 12 to 27. It’s unclear the conditions of people who were shot or injured in the aftermath. One person, however, is believed to be in critical condition while others are being treated for conditions that are unknown as of press time.
Last month, 49 people were killed in a shooting at Pulse, a popular gay nightclub in Orlando, in an apparent mass hate crime.
