Default Mass shooting and hostages taken at gay nightclub in Orlando...

..I'm just trying to find out more about this but atm, all I can find is this article...


According to reports, an unidentified gunman has barricaded himself and hostages inside Pulse nighclub in Orlando, Florida.

The shooter is understood to have shot at around 20 people.

As the situation escalated, the nightclub tweeted: "Everyone get out of pulse and keep running."

One eye witness suggested there was more than one attacker and it is unclear whether the gunmen are still inside the building.

Police have detonated a device :/

One witness, Rosie Feba, told the Orlando Sentinel her girlfriend had said someone was shooting but she had assumed it was part of the music at first.

She said: "She told me someone was shooting. Everyone was getting on the floor.

"I told her I didn't think it was real, I thought it was just part of the music, until I saw fire coming out of his gun."

Ms Feba and her girlfriend ran out of the club, helping a man who had been shot on the way out.

The couple were shaken but unhurt.

Another witness, Ricardo J Negron Almodovar, said: "I was there. Shooter opened fire at around 2:00am.

"People on the dance floor and bar got down on the floor and some of us who were near the bar and back exit managed to go out through the outdoor area and just ran.

It sounds like it, although it sounds domestic in nature rather than an extremist attack.

Seems too close to the Christina Grimmie thing to be a one-off, surely?

Apparently Kenya Michaels from Drag Race was there performing, she got out safely though thank god.

Hopefully Orlando security will be a lot tighter after these recent attacks

And yet the gun laws still remain the same.
The Orlando police have tweeted that there are "mass casualties" and that the shooter is now dead though it's not clear atm whether that's from suicide or police gun fire,.

So so sad to read this

I'm not one to wade into the gun debate but they're far too easily to get in the US it's ridiculous

This is really sad

I doubt anything will change but the U.S. clearly need to do something about gun control

Absolutely horrific. These cowards always plan to go the the gun free zones so they know that no civilians with guns will be able to stop them. Absolute scumbag.
