OCALA, Fla. (AP) – Authorities say a 19-year-old girl has died and five others were injured in a spray of gunfire in the parking lot of an Ocala nightclub.

Marion County sheriff’s officials said someone drove through a crowd of people outside Cloud 9 early Sunday morning and opened fire. Authorities said Benetria Robinson, 19, died at the scene.

Five others were taken to the hospital. The Ocala Star-Banner reports three of the victims are in serious but stable condition and two received non-life-threatening injuries. Their names are not being released for their protection.

Authorities estimate 1,000 people gathered at the crime scene after the shooting.

No suspects have been identified.
