What is being called the worst mass shooting in American history has left at least 50 dead and more than 50 wounded. Fox News reports that a gunman with terrorist ties opened fire at a nightclub in Orlando, Florida, last night:
A gunman who federal authorities say had possible ties to terrorism opened fire early Sunday morning in a packed Orlando nightclub, killing 50 people and wounding at least 53 more in a bloody scene that ended hours later when police stormed the building and killed the shooter.
Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer asked Gov. Rick Scott to declare a state of emergency following the attack.
The gunman was identified as Omar Mateen, Rep. Alan Grayson said during a Sunday morning press conference...
"More likely than not, that it was an ideologically motivated attack," Grayson said, though he said it was unclear if Mateen was linked to any terror groups.
"It's not coincidence the attack took place where it did and when it did," Grayson said.
