We literally sat on our Facebook Page and watched this whole thing unfold. Our stomachs sank as the story moved closer to home.
Police say Multiple people died at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando. Orlando Police are calling it Domestic Terrorism.
Please correct Shooter is from Ft. Pierce. I think its the family home in Port St Lucie.
He was investigated twice but FBI dropped the case. He purchased his firearms this week. We don’t know where yet.
Our stomachs sank as the story moved closer to home.
The worst mass shooting in US history happened in Orlando yesterday. 50 dead, another 53 wounded. All done by one Treasure Coast man. 29-year old Omar Mateen of Fort Pierce, an American citizen. He walked into an Orlando nightclub early Sunday morning and opened fire. He used a handgun and an AR-15 rifle. The AR-15 is the civilian version of the M16 assault rifle. Both guns were purchased legally less than a week ago. The FBI was aware of Mateen for the past several years.
