A shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando is the worst mass shooting in U.S. history with over 50 dead and 53 injured at this time.

Orlando police and firefighter/paramedics responded just after 2:02 a.m. when the first shot was fired near the Pulse Orlando nightclub at 1912 South Orange Avenue. The offender fired a shot at an Orlando police officer and then ran into the nightclub. The club was believed to have about 200 people inside. The situation was managed as a hostage situation.

By 5:00 a.m. the police department’s SWAT team opened fire and charged the building. Police distracted Mateen with an explosive device and plowed into the building with a vehicle. When tactical officers went inside, they discovered 50 dead, including the offender, and 53 injured patrons of the club.

Police have identified the gunman as Omar Mateen of Port St. Lucie, who was killed after a shootout with Orlando police. Mateen was initially reported to be armed with an AR-15-style, a handgun, and extra ammunition.

Shooting victims were transported to Level I Trauma Center Orlando Regional Medical Center (ORMC), which is about four blocks or one-half mile from mass shooting scene. ORMC established a family information center early this morning, asking family members to go to at 52 West Underwood Street.

Orlando authorities set up an information center at the Hampton Inn at 43 Columbia Street and urged relatives to call 407-246-4357.

Police Chief John Mina credited Orlando police officers with rescuing 30 hostages.

Mina also stated the mass shooting is not believed to be related to a separate shooting Friday night inside The Plaza Live theater in Orlando when former NBC’s “The Voice” contestant Christina Grimmie was killed by a lone gunman, who then killed himself.

Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer said he had declared a state of emergency for the city of Orlando and requested the governor of Florida do the same for the state.

Before Sunday morning’s attack at the Pulse nightclub, the deadliest shootings in United States history were at Virginia Tech in 2007 when 32 were killed and Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012 when 27 were killed.

On November 13, 2015 terrorists executed coordinated attacks in Paris and Saint-Denis (northern suburb), killing 130 people. Eighty-nine people were killed at the Bataclan theatre. Over 360 people were injured — about 100 seriously or critically injured.
