SEMINOLE COUNTY, Florida – Security camera footage from a Florida event venue shows the moment a fight broke out which led to a shooting that left 10 people, including Houston Texans wide receiver Tank Dell, injured.

The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office released the video along with more information about what happened at the Cabana Live event venue during the early morning hours on Sunday.

The sheriff’s office says deputies initially responded to the venue just after midnight to establish an area patrol due to a large crowd, estimated at around 200 people.

“The event was promoted as “No One Leaves Sober” and did not have the required event permit. Concerned about the number of patrons in the establishment, shortly after arrival, deputies heard multiple gunshots originating from the rear of the establishment, prompting the dispersal of the crowd,” a press release on the incident said.

When deputies got inside, they were met with an armed security officer who had successfully apprehended the suspected shooter, a 16-year-old male. The deputies also discovered 10 people had received non-life threatening injuries from the shooting. The sheriff’s office says nine of the 10 victims have since been treated and released from hospitals.

The sheriff’s office said the shooting began as a fight between attendees. During the fight, the 16-year-old suspect pulled out a handgun and fired multiple shots towards a crowd of people. Deputies said they later found out a second unidentified person had returned fire with five additional rounds. The search continues for the second unidentified gunman.

“We’re fortunate no one is dead or more people injured,” said Sheriff Dennis Lemma, who credited the actions of a security guard as “heroic.” “He literally tackled this guy from behind, got his weapon, and delivered him to us in handcuffs.”

The promoters had ten armed security guards working the event and had a no-firearms policy for patrons. It’s unclear how the teen charged got in with the handgun, but will be part of the ongoing investigation.

Tank Dell received minor wounds as an innocent bystander in the shooting. He was treated and released from the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.

The 16-year-old suspect has been charged with possession of a firearm by a minor, use and display of a firearm during a felony, firing a weapon on public property and attempted homicide. He is being held at a Florida juvenile detention center.
