A Florida nightclub shooting early on Monday left at least two people dead and 14 wounded in Fort Myers, several news sites reported early Monday morning.

Local TV stations reported that the Club Blu club had been hosting a teen party at the time. At least three people had been detained, Reuters reported.

The Associated Press said as many as 17 people had been shot in the early morning shooting at the club, police Capt. Jim Mulligan said.

Three people have been taken into custody and there are two active crime scenes, Mulligan said.

The area was later deemed safe, but Mulligan said a street was still closed as authorities investigated.

In a statement, authorities said the Fort Myers police and the Lee County Sheriff's Office were "actively canvassing the area looking for other persons who may be involved in this incident."

The names of the victims were not immediately available.

The shooting comes more than a month after a nightclub shooting in Orlando that was the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history. The shooting at the Pulse nightclub on June 12 left 49 victims dead and 53 others wounded.
