Houston Texans wide receiver Tank Dell was one of ten people injured at a Florida club on Saturday night, when a suspect opened fire near the back of the establishment.

In a statement, the team said he was recovering and had been released from the hospital “in good spirits” after treatment for a minor injury.

Nine other people also suffered minor injuries when the shots rang out at Cabana Live just after midnight Sunday morning, according to the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office. Most of the victims were shot in the lower body, authorities said.

According to local media outlets, officers on area patrol heard gunshots coming from the back of the establishment, which caused the crowd to quickly scatter in panic. Authorities believe an argument escalated into the gunfire.

A security guard managed to apprehend the suspect, a 16-year-old, who was then booked into the nearby Juvenile Detention Center. It was unclear if the teenager was a guest attending the private event at the venue.

In an Instagram post Sunday morning, a spokesperson for the venue said they were working with the sheriff’s office and assured visitors that the community was safe.

“We rented out our venue for a private event and we are still learning as the investigation continues what was the cause of this isolated incident,” the post reads. “Our Cabana Live family is 100% safe and appreciate all the prayers and concerns.”

The investigation is ongoing.
