UPDATE: Ft. Myers police say shooting wasn't terrorism

Two are dead and at least 15 wounded after a shooting at a Florida nightclub hosting an event for teens.

Police responded to reports of a shooting in the parking lot of Club Blu in Fort Myers, according to the (Fort Myers) News-Press.

(You can see the scene of the shooting in the video above.)

Police said wounds ranged from minor to life-threatening.

Shots were fired at two other places nearby, police said. 

Three people were taken into custody, and police deemed the area around the club "safe" shortly before 6 a.m. 

A now-deleted Facebook post from Club Blu said the teen event was over before shots were fired.

The youngest victim was 12 years old, WPEC reports.

Club Blu is about 160 miles from Pulse, where the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history took place in June. 

Here's another look at the scene.

One attendee posted a Facebook Live video of himself lying on a hospital bed, and shared this.

Here's Club Blu's response.
