police_lights.jpgWINTER SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) _ Authorities in central Florida say two people died and a third was critically injured when gunfire erupted in the parking lot of a Veterans of Foreign War post as a charity motorcycle ride was getting under way.

The Orlando Sentinel (http://thesent.nl/PFH6Ii ) reports Winter Springs police think all three victims of the Sunday morning shooting were members of the Warlocks motorcycle club.

Police spokesman Doug Seely says a confrontation took place just before the 10:40 a.m. shooting. He says police detained multiple people and confiscated a lot of weapons.

The parking lot was taped off and a nearby senior center was evacuated after the shooting.

Police were unsure whether there was more than one shooter. They have not released names of the victims. No further details were immediately available.
