Massacre In Orlando

Via NBC:

Approximately 20 people are dead and scores wounded after a gunman opened fire and took hostages at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, early Sunday morning, police said.

Officials said a hostage situation developed after the gunman stormed the Pulse Nightclub about 2 a.m. The shooter, identified by several law enforcement sources as Omar Mateen, was shot dead about three hours later when a SWAT team entered the club, police said.

The law enforcement sources told NBC News that Mateen was born in New York in 1986 and was listed as living at a residence in Port St. Lucie, about 125 miles south of Orlando.

The incident is being investigated as an act of terrorism, officials said.

2 barks and woofs on “Massacre In Orlando

  1. Not Muslim terrorism, but according to MSNBC and a message from the man’s father this was LGBT terrorism. The shooter was reacting to having seen two men kissing in Miami. So new focus by the talking heads and the candidates – not a bad thing, actually. High time . . .

  2. I am so sad about yet another mass shooting this time in Orlando where people were simply going to a club to enjoy a summer night. How do people so easily obtain assault rifles in this country? When will we stop killing each other? I wish I had the answer but this I know for certain love is stronger than hate.
