A shooter opened fire at a Fort Myers, Fla., nightclub and fled after killing at least two people and wounding more than a dozen early Monday, according to local reports.

Evidence cones marked about two dozen bullet casings littering a strip mall parking lot where authorities were investigating a deadly shooting outside Club Blu.

The gunfire struck 15 to 17 people, reported WINK-TV, citing Lee County Sheriff’s Office.

Police are searching for the armed assailant near the south Fort Myers venue.

A suspect description was not immediately released.

One witness said she ducked under her vehicle with her sister as gunshots erupted.

“I couldn’t believe we were in a live shooting,” Juss Olivia said in a Facebook Live video.

Olivia saw at least one young shooting victim lying on the ground at the bar and grill.

“The little boy was just laying on the floor,” Olivia said. “He was just trying to fight for his life. The little boy was out.”

An apparent shooting victim identified on Facebook as Timothy Settles posted a four-second clip of himself lying down, silently, in a hospital bed with blood on his face.

“I don’t wabna (sic) die,” Settles wrote.

The club, through its headline performer Nieya, advertised a “Swimsuit Glow Party” for Sunday night with a flyer that stated that no identification was required for entry.

Fort Myers police did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
