More than 50 are dead and many more are wounded in an attack on a gay night club in Orlando, Florida. The attacker was Omar Siddiqui Mateen a Muslim male 29 years old of Afghan heritage and a legal American citizen. Reports say Omar Mateen shot the victims as they were trapped inside the building. Omar was later shot and killed by SWAT team as they entered the building.
The FBI has classified the attack as a "domestic terrorism" motivated by Omar Maeen's "Islamic leanings". Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attack but at this point there is not proof yet that they had any direct involvement.
