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.

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."
