Three suspects are in custody, according to officials. The victims have not been identified.

Fort Myers Police Captain Jim Mulligan said it's unclear how many people have been injured, but put the number at 15 to 17. "The numbers, they're sort of fluctuating. We have multiple hospitals calling in," Mulligan told WINK-TV.

A Lee Memorial Hospital spokeswoman said during a press conference on NBC News that the ages of the victims range from 12 to 27.

A house and cars nearby the club were also shot at, according to CBS News.

Timothy Settles, who was at the club, livestreamed via Facebook Live from what appears to be inside a hospital following the shooting, and wrote "I don't wanna die" on his status.
