Three suspects have been detained and another is still on the run, say reports.

Two people have died and over 14 have been injured in a shooting at a Florida nightclub, reports NBC.

The attack took place at Club Blu in Fort Myers, Florida, at about 12.30am this morning (July 25). There are reports that the incident occurred at a teen night, although this has not been confirmed. Injuries range from minor to life threatening.

A statement from the police says two other nearby scenes are connected with the incident, and breaking reports say three suspects have now been detained. Police are still looking for a motive. Read the police statement below.

Update: Fort Myers police say the shooting was not an act of terrorism.

Authorities also identified the two victims who died as 14-year-old Sean Archilles and 18-year-old Ste’fan Strawder.

The incident follows last month’s attack on an LGBT nightclub in Orlando, which left 50 dead and 53 injured.
