I just saw this on our local news website here in NZ.Not alot of info yet but I thought I would have seen it on ATS but had a look and nothing.Here is the link and the info from the New Zealand Herald.
www.nzherald.co.nz...




One person is dead and at least four others are wounded after a shooting at a zombie-themed street festival in Florida.

The suspect is still believed to be at large with Fort Myers police confirming on Twitter an investigation is underway.

No word of the area on lockdown or a manhunt in progress so obviously no police were hurt in the incident.

At first I thought this was some kind of joke, I mean the set up for it is perfect. Sadly it was all to real for Expavious Tyrell Taylor of Okeechobee who was killed during the incident.

An update:
News-Press

It's my understanding one victim died at the scene.
This gentleman, below, has some odd sounding wounds. If verifiable and trustworthy source!


A GoFundMe account says it is raising money for a victim of the Zombicon shooting. Two hours into the fundraising efforts for David Perez, 25 people had donated $660. Lee Memorial Health Center lists a man by the name of David Perez in stable condition. The page includes this description of the fundraisers:

"What we thought was going to be a night out with friends turned into a horrific night. We were at the wrong place at the wrong time. Someone decided to open fire in a crowd of thousands of people. After the first shots were fired I turned to run but he immediately told me he's been shot. Medics on the spot were able to stop the bleeding with pressure. David currently has 10 gun shot wounds. The bullet entered his left palm, exited the palm, entered left thigh and excited left thigh, entered and exited scrotum, entered right thigh and exited left thigh then entered right palm and excited right palm. David has two broken hands due to the bullets entering his hands. Surgery is needed to fix his hands. He is in pain but he is here with us and that is all that matters. Please keep our family in your prayers. Anything you can donate is extremely appreciated. He will be here for recovering. I will keep everyone updated. Thank you for your concerns."

The whole zombie craze really needs to die out. Zombies used to be scary.
