Orlando Nightclub Massacre
Latest Updates on Pulse Shooting by NBC NEWS 13/6/2016
Forty-nine people were killed and 53 more were wounded when a gunman launched an assault on a gay nightclub in Orlando early Sunday.
What we know:
The shooter, killed in a shootout with police after a three-hour siege, was Omar Mateen, 29, of Fort Pierce, Florida.
Mateen called 911 before the attack, expressing fealty to ISIS. He had been probed by the FBI twice, but the investigations were closed. He legally bought the two guns used in the attack within the past week.
President Obama said there was no clear evidence Mateen was part of a larger plot.
The names of some of the victims killed in the shooting have been released, and include club-goers between the ages of 20 and 50 years old.
Forty-three of the 53 people injured in the shooting remained hospitalized Monday, with five in grave condition.
