Orlando Nightclub Massacre

Posted at June 13th, 2016 | by Supreet.cheema | in

The most deadly shooting in American history took place on early Sunday morning as a gunman opened fire and took hostages at a gay club in Orlando. At least 50 are dead and more than 53 were injured. The shooter, now identified by officials as Omar Mateen, was armed with an assault rifle and a handgun.

According to officials, the gunman stormed the Pulse Nightclub about 2 a.m. ET with an AR-15 type rifle and a handgun. The shooting ended at about 5 a.m. ET, when 11 Orlando police officers and three Orange County sheriff’s deputies stormed the nightclub and exchanged fire with Mateen, authorities said.

The 29-year-old Omar Mir Saddique Mateen was an American citizen whose parents were from Afghanistan. He claimed allegiance to the Islamic State in a 911 call he made at the time of the attack, law enforcement officials said. Moreover, according to the reports Mateen had security and firearm licenses and the gunman’s weapons were legally purchased within the past week.
