According to Palm Bay police, shots were fired during the party, striking three people.

The victims, all of Brevard County, were taken to a hospital, where one of them died, police said.

Police identified the deceased victim as Frank Glover, 19, of Palm Bay on Monday afternoon.

The other two victims suffered non-life-threatening injuries, according to police.

No arrests have been made.

A motive for the shooting have not been released.

Rosemary Rush said her 19-year-old daughter recorded video of she and her friends dancing at the party before the chaos.

Rush said she heard the gunshots.

‘’There were so many people. This whole place was full of cars,’’ the mother said.

She said a car belonging to their family, parked where they live at the Arlington Pines Townhomes, was hit by another car as police said more than 100 people got out of the area as fast as they could.

The Hive Lounge did not respond to News 6 Monday.

The business’s Facebook advertised hosting birthday parties, private events and movie nights.

Police said they don’t even know who booked the party.

‘’Right now, we don’t have a person of interest. Hopefully, the two individuals who are injured can start recalling who they were interacting with and give us some information,’’ Lt. Jeff Spears said.

Anyone with information about the shooting is urged to call Crimeline at 800-423-TIPS or the Palm Bay Police Department at 321-952-3456.


In a previous version of this story, police had misidentified the establishment where the shooting occurred. This information has been corrected. News 6 apologizes for any confusion this may have caused.
