Police say two people are dead and another injured after a shooting at a Florida Veterans of Foreign Wars post.

Winter Springs Police said a charity motorcycle ride was supposed to depart from the post when the shooting broke out Sunday morning while the riders were eating breakfast. The Orlando Sentinel reports an unknown number of armed men came in and began firing. It's unclear if anyone shot back.

Authorities said there was some type of argument in the parking lot before the shooting.

Winter Springs Police spokesman Lt. Doug Seely said the agency has detained several people and confiscated a number of weapons.

According to the group's website, the VFW has helped establish the Veterans Administration as well as improve education benefits and medical centers, among other things.
