1 dead, 2 injured in Florida nightclub shooting

DELAND, Fla. — One person died and two others were injured during a weekend shooting at a DeLand nightclub.

Police say 24-year-old Jamel Simmons was found Sunday lying in the street outside The Big House, which is a house that operates as a nightclub. He was taken to a hospital where he died.

Deputy Police Chief Randel Henderson told the Daytona Beach News-Journal two other people were taken to the hospital — one with a gunshot wound and the other with injuries from a physical altercation.

Police have released few details, including the victims' names or genders. Henderson says that's because they are "instrumental to the case."

The home is known in the area as a party house. Henderson says this isn't the first incident at the home.
