Orlando Nightclub Shooting | At Least 50 Dead, Omar Mateen identified as shooter

A shooting at an Orlando gay nightclub early Sunday morning has been described as a “domestic terror incident” with 50 fatalities and 53 injured, hospitalized individuals, officials said.

The shooter has been identified by officials as Omar Mateen of St. Lucie County, Florida.

FBI assistant agent in charge of the agency’s Tampa division, Ron Hopper, was asked at a news conference on Sunday at 7 a.m. if the shooter, who was shot and killed by police, had ties to Jihadist terror groups.

“At this time we’re looking at all angles right now,” the official said. “We do have suggestions that that individual may have leanings towards that, that particular ideology. But right now we can’t say definitively, so we’re still running everything around.”

The FBI also said the shooter “was organized and well-prepared,” adding “he is not from this area.”

    i find it hard to believe that all of these people are there to genuinely
    moarn and help the LGTB community that was attacked, when they said they
    heard from Texas thats when i knew they were being phoeny.
    Those peoples probably never cared about the LGBTs, they are just ridding
    the wagon so they seem less hatefull and instead of hating gays that day
    they get to hate muslims.
    And you know its true, not for everyone, but a big portion of those people
    hate LGBTs and are just pretending they feel bad to go with the flow

    This wouldn’t have happened if the other 50 people had guns. The guns are

    Fuck Islam, Fuck Muhammad, and Fuck the dumbass people that follow this
    religion. All any of you bring is death and more death, and for what? So
    your woman can be wrapped head to toe like a fucking mummy? So you can fly
    planes into more “evil westerner’s” buildings? So you can honor kill all
    your daughter’s who want to marry another man that isn’t already chosen for
    her? All people want to do is live there life’s in peace not die at the
    sake of your bullshit religion. Im so sick of it, how many U.S troops, and
    Innocent people have to die before people see that this religon isn’t a
    religon that fits with today’s time.

    Let’s get this straight, The real Islam is peace, love, and Quran. Omar
    Mateen isn’t a Sunnah Muslim, he is shi3ah Muslim. The difference is that
    Sunnah people are not terrorists, but shiaah Muslims are. Please like this
    comment so everybody can see, THANKS, A REGULAR MUSLIM WHO LOVES PEACE NOT

    All this ppl blaming Islam,Bitch this nigga was nuts to begin with,and
    islam said in nowhere that u should kill ppl. This guy was a maniac who
    used islam as a scapegoat,also if guns were illegal this nit jobs wouldn’t
    easily get their hands on them. I like how Christians are tryna to islam is
    a religion of war,don’t make me remind u what the crusaders did for 800
    years,they attacked and killed ppl and Europeans actually supported this
    crazy crusader. Nut jobs like this kid who just shot up the club should not
    get access to guns,if they did proper background check but here again some
    dumb conservative cunts think it is better to fight violence with
    violence,when did fire ever put out fire,Conservatives should think…

    What a disgrace! Christians were getting murdered on the daily in the
    middle east by very cruel methods and no one was given the footage through
    the popular media. Of course not, because that would have shook them up
    real good. Now homosexuals and transgenders seem to fill in the role of
    televised sports…mass distraction!

    its surprises me how many people down in the comment sections have been
    brainwashed by Trump and Hillary and the news. Seems like Im one of the
    only sane ones left in America. If you still have youre sanity, please
