Video: PANIC erupts at Zombicon as gunman fires at crowd, leaving one dead

What started as a fun night turned tragic as gunfire broke out at a Florida zombie convention.

Five people were shot, one killed, at the ZombiCon gathering in Fort Myers Saturday night. The shooter managed to disappear into the crowd and escape, the New York Daily News reported.

Crowd size contributed to the chaos that followed the shooting.

“You can imagine with that many people, there was people taking cover, officers were running toward the shots and that’s when we located victims,” Lt. Victor Medico told reporters.

According to CNN, one man died at the scene and four others were taken to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Event organizers expressed grief at the tragedy.

“The organizers of Zombicon, Pushing DaiZies, Inc. are deeply saddened by the news of what happened within the footprint of our event,” they said in a statement. “We take the safety of our patrons very seriously and take precautions in hiring security and police officers for our annual event. Our prayers go out to the family members and individuals involved in the incident.

Video and photos of the event flooded social media Saturday night and captured the bedlam at the scene.
