A terrorist who hated gays (how open minded of the Islamic extremist) shot and killed 20 innocents in beautiful Orlando FL today.
A suspected terrorist shooting at an LGBT nightclub in Orlando has left up to 20 people dead, police have confirmed, adding that the attacker has been killed following a hostage situation at the club..
Shots were fired at the Pulse Club, in the early hours of Sunday. Staff at the venueposted on Facebook: “Everyone get out of pulse and keep running” and there were quickly reports on social media of an ongoing attack.
Orlando police said the shooting was being treated as “terrorist activity” and had resulted in mass casualties, urging people to stay away from the area. Local unconfirmed reports suggested as many as 20 people could have been injured in the attack, and video footage shared on social media showed a high police presence around the club.
Police confirmed that a number of people had been killed in the attack – in the “vicinity of 20” – but refused to give a toll. They added that 42 people had been taken to hospital and confirmed the gunman was armed with an assault rifle, handgun and “some kind of device”.
In a press conference on Sunday morning, an FBI spokesman said investigators believed the attacker may have had extremist beliefs, and would consider possible links to Isis, but cautioned there were pursuing multiple leads.
