8 years ago He Was the Shooter

Mass murderer Omar Mir Seddique Mateen is shot dead after a three-hour standoff with police officers at the age of 30 in Pulse Nightclub, 1912 S. Orange Avenue, Orlando, Florida, United States.

In three hours time Mateen shot and killed 49 people and wounded another 58 with a SIG Sauer MCX semi-automatic rifle and a 9mm Glock 17 semi-automatic pistol during a 'Latin Night'. At 2:45 a.m., Mateen called News 13 of Orlando and said "I'm the shooter. It's me. I am the shooter." He then said he was carrying out the shooting on the behalf of ISIS and began speaking rapidly in Arabic.
