Club Blu, Fort Myers, Shooting, Security Guard

Two people are dead — including a 14-year-old boy and a Lehigh High School basketball star — and at least 16 are injured after a shooting Monday morning during a party at Club Blu in Fort Myers. Here’s what we know about Club Blu.

What happened?

The club hosted a teen event Sunday night called “Swimsuit and Glow Party.” It started at 8:30 p.m. with free glow kits and beach toys distributed at the door to celebrate “Vonte Birthday Bash.” People were not asked to present ID because it was a planned birthday party for teens. Four hours later, police responded to a shooting in the parking lot.

“We did everything we could to make sure these kids were safe,” Filardi said, noting at least eight armed guards were there for security. “There was nothing we could do … a car rolled up and just started shooting.”

There was a series of gunshots fired in rapid succession, she said, leading her to believe one of the guns involved was automatic.

One of the security guards also was shot, she said.
