Police say they have detained a person of interest in connection with the overnight club shooting in Fort Myers.

Two people are dead and up to 16 injured after a deadly shooting at Club Blu in Fort Myers.

The Fort Myers Police Department responded around 12:30 a.m. Monday to the club at 3580 Evans Ave. after a shooting in the parking lot, according to a news release. Officers found more than a dozen victims suffering from gunshots wounds, their injuries ranging from minor to life threatening.

Those victims were taken to local hospitals, police said in the statements. Other victims were injured but went to hospitals for treatment on their own.

The club was hosting a "swimsuit glow party" for teens Sunday night, a local ABC station reported. At this point, police said, it is unclear what the motives were behind the shooting.

Police responded to two other areas in Fort Myers they believe to be tied to the club shooting. Officers went to the 2500 block of Parkway Street, where a residence and cars were shot at. One person suffered a minor injury. The second location was on Ortiz Avenue, where the person of interest was detained.

Fort Myers police and deputies from the Lee County Sheriff's Office are canvassing the area in search anyone else involved in the shooting.

This shooting comes six weeks after the deadly shooting at Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando more than 150 miles away.

The gunman, who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State, killed 49 club patrons before being shot by police, June 12 in what is considered the worst mass shooting in recent U.S. history.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
