I live just a few blocks away from that site at least 15 helicopters circling overhead.. I received a phone call at 5 AM this morning from a deputy sheriff friend of mine on the scene he was one of the first to respond at 2 AM, he is a seasoned veteran deputy some may know him on this site (owner of sky's the limit). He said it was horrific worse than anything he had ever seen in Vietnam.. More blood and bodies stacked then he has ever seen in one location before.. He will live with that sight forever.. This came just one day after the shooting of the voice star 2 miles away from there too..

A very sad and sick event. Innocent folks enjoying a Saturday night out, some never to return to their homes and loved ones. May they be blessed and rest in peace, and may God bless the families and friends of all the victims.

Neil.

Very very tragic. Some are saying it is a combination of Hate Crime and Terrorist attack

RIP to all the innocent lives lost

Sadly the 20 feared dead is now 50 confirmed. And with the shooter's identity revealed, Trump's popularity just got a boost.

Thank you for the update. 50 dead now makes this the worst mass shooting in the USA.

Gunman update:

Omar Saddiqui Mateen was the gunman who opened fire at a gay nightclub in Orlando, killing at least 50 people, two law enforcement officials told CNN.

The suspect, 29, who was killed by police, is from Fort Pierce, Florida, the officials said.
A law enforcement source told CNN that Mateen worked as a private security guard. He rented a car and drove to Orlando to carry out the attack, the source said.

FBI teams and local law enforcement are working to clear Mateen's apartment, a federal law enforcement source said.

Agents are going through the apartment with bomb squads and investigating the materials there, the source said.

Uncertain how credible TMZ sources are, though they are quoting NBC in the article.

R.I.P., to my gay brothers and sisters. We will march prouder and louder in this year's Pride for you.

Jake Tapper on CNN is an idiot! "The worst story every reported" he says. Although this mass shooting is tragic, the worst story ever in terms of a mass killing on US soil was 9/11 and Pearl Harbor! Unfortunately the US has a memory problem and only focuses on the current news of the day!

Pearl Harbor = Japanese dive planes, bombers, destroyers, air craft carriers, etc.

911 = 2 commercial aircraft flown into the WTC buildings

Orlando night club = assault rifle, hand gun, etc. used by 1 lone person

Thus, worst mass shooting in USA history. I agree Jake can't differentiate between weapons used to inflict damage to innocents.

I just can't believe how Christina Grimmie was shot-dead a couple of days ago and now over 50 people. What is wrong with those taking inocent lives away?! Too much hatred.
Extracting part of the lyrics of Titanium sang by Christina...
Shoot me down...but I won't fall...I am titanium.

I watched just last night "why they hate us" on CNN. I found it very disturbing. Seeing a 5 or 6 year old holding an AK-47???????? When I was five,I recall water pistols were the big thing.

Just heard Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, on Fox News say that just before being killed, the shooter pledged alliance to ISIS. Fox did not confirm it however.

With the president finally making a statement at the bottom of the hour, he should have spoken directly to the officers on the scene. And if an officer confirms that the shooter said those words, then the president better not make excuses for the gunman. I'm interested to hear Obama's statement.

My condolences to the families and friends of the victims. A hard road lies ahead to try to find some healing.

It is apt to leave this video here:

So watch this video and really consider the words spoken .... for all your fellow human brothers and sisters. When will we learn to live in peace with those who are different?

More info on the killer:

The shooter suspected of killing 50 people and injuring 53 others inside a gay nightclub early Sunday in Orlando has been identified as Omar Seddique Mateen. Here's what we know so far:

• Who is the suspect: Omar Seddique Mateen, 29, of Fort Pierce, Fla., about 120 miles southeast of Orlando, is the suspected shooter. FBI Special Agent Ronald Hopper said at a news conference Mateen was a U.S. citizen who was born in New York. Mateen had been employed by the global security firm G4S since September 2007, the company said in a statement, and was not on duty at the time of shooting.

Florida state records list an Omar Mateen as a licensed security officer who also has a statewide firearms license. The suspect was killed by police after a hostage situation at the Pulse nightclub.

• Suspect known to FBI: The FBI first became aware of Mateen in 2013 after he made "inflammatory comments" to coworkers, Hopper said. The FBI "thoroughly investigated" the situation, Hopper said, including interviewing witnesses and conducting surveillance.

Mateen was interviewed twice, but the FBI was unable to verify the substance of the comments and the case was closed. Hopper did not elaborate on what the comments were that concerned Mateen's co-workers.

In 2014, Mateen again came to the FBI's attention because of an association with Moner Mohammad Abusalha, an American who grew up in Florida and carried out a suicide bombing attack in Syria that year. But the FBI determined that the contact was minimal and the case was closed, Hopper said.

Mateen was not currently under investigation or surveillance by FBI, Hopper said.

So an American citizen, licensed to own firearms, with a grudge against society and known to the FBI but not acted upon... familiar pattern ?

I wish the media would stop showing this man's photos and mentioning his name. He doesn't deserve any notoriety for this massacre nor the cause or beliefs he adhered to. Senseless hate and tragedy.

Agreed. And they should also stop saying over and over again this the worst mass murder in US History. First, this just motivates another terrorist to do worst. Second the worst mass murder in the US was 9-11.

I agree. I hope within the next few days we will hear more about the innocent victims of this horrific event.

From which media source(s) have you heard this? I hear them saying "worst mass shooting in U.S. history" and "worst terrorist attack since 9/11 on U.S. soil", both of which are entirely accurate.

Been reading more about the gunman.

Seems like this guy was simply a loser looking to vent his anger at the world. I am not saying religion had nothing to do with this idiots actions but people have described him as a rage-filled time bomb.

Hated minorities, hated Homosexuals, hated non-Muslims, hated women. Someone with this much fury in them isn't going to need much to push them to violence.

What can be said except may those dear ones lost Rest In Peace.

This is a disgusting act of terror and hate against the Gay community and to America herself.
I hope that my Gay brothers and sisters around the world stand taller and prouder in resillience against such evil.

I'd like to share this picture which was taken tonight in my hometown.

It's the Adelaide Oval here in Adelaide, South Australia as it was lit up this evening in recognition and memory to all those taken from our global family.

Peace to everyone!!!

It's so frustrating to see how a man known to the FBI was allowed to still have a state-wide firearms license. When will the U.S. learn that this is not an isolated incident and it's just the beginning? This is not homegrown terror. This was inspired by the World's most radical and dangerous group.

Senseless hate. How can that be fixed? I certainly don't have any answers.

Answers would be very difficult to come by, but a start would be to not brush an entire group of people with the same brush as some have the tendency to do on DA.C

Yes, during emotional events, people focus on certain aspects, but rational thought should prevail to prevent an escalation and spread of more hate.

I can already see a trend here. Those ones who has a biased world view about all Muslims are already using this to drive their agenda. That is not going to solve the problem, in fact, it will make the problem worse. Those ones, in my opinion, are part of the problem.

The rule of law should still apply. Evidence was lacking in identifying this individual without a doubt. But we don't know how many thousands of people need to be 'watched', do we all want to live in a Orwellian world? But the second amendment must be re-examined. Is it really still relevant?

Don't know either. News report here say it seemed to be linked but I honestly don't know, just disgusted.
