    Doesn't sound good. Police confirm multiple shooting victims at a night spot.

    Happened 3 1/2 hours ago and nothing is on the News Press website. Do they even have anyone in the newsroom at 1 a.m. anymore?

    NBC News reports 17 shot, two killed.

    Is there speculation on club demographic yet?

    I don't think I even want to know what a " 'swimsuit glow party' geared toward teens" is.

    Ages of patients ranged from 12 to 27. Also conveniently located right across from a day care center so the 12 year olds could go straight to day care from the club.

    My employer has a Ft. Myers office. It's my official work location. A good friend's son was friends with one of the kids who died.

    To pick up their kids, you mean.

    Can't believe how little attention this is getting. Guess we are numb to it now.

    As cold as it sounds, I wonder if it's a numbers game at this point. Does it take five or more deaths to get the full media treatment? What's the cutoff for a "mass shooting?"
