Officials say two people have been killed and at least 16 wounded in a shooting outside a nightclub in Florida.

Lee Memorial Health System says in a press release that 16 victims ranging in age from 12 to 27 started arriving at the facility around 1:30 a.m. One of those people died at the hospital.

Four people remained at the hospital early Monday, including two in the intensive care unit. All others were treated and released. One person was treated and released at a different hospital.

Police say the area around Club Blu has been deemed safe, and three people have been taken into custody.

The shooting comes more than a month after a nightclub shooting in Orlando that was the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history.
