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

The Orlando Sentinel reports Winter Springs police think all three victims of the Sunday morning shooting were members of a 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.
