Gay nightclub shooting Orlando - It was a night where everyone was partying, dancing and drinking in a gay night club named Pulse.
The Gay nightclub shooting Orlando started about 2 am, with more than 300 people inside the Pulse.
After the club was full and the party was about to close in some hours, Omar Mateen emerged carrying an AR-15 fully loaded and started firing recklessly at the crowd.
Mateen's family was from Afghanistan, and he was born in New York. His family later moved to Florida, authorities said. His ex-wife Sitora Yusufiy said that he was not fit mentally.

When the gunfire finally stopped, 50 people were dead and dozens more were critically wounded in the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.
Omar Mateen, who law enforcement officials said had pledged allegiance to ISIS in a 911 call around the time of the attack, died in a gun battle with SWAT team members.
Authorities immediately began investigating whether the assault was an act of terrorism and probing the background of Mateen, a 29-year-old American citizen from Fort Pierce, Florida, who had worked as a security guard.
The gunman got angry when he saw two men kissing in Miami and it is said that it might be related to the assault.
Thirty-nine of the dead were killed at the Gay nightclub shooting Orlando, and 11 people died at hospitals, Mayor Buddy Dyer said.
Many of the people are critically injured in the hospital and death toll is said to be rising.
The previous deadliest mass shooting in the US was the 2007 attack at Virginia Tech, where a student killed 32 people before killing himself.
Pray for the people and their family.
