Morning Jess and yes, it's awful!

ORMC is a level 1 trauma center so the victims are/will be in excellent hands.

There's that at least.

Shooter dead after mass shooting at Orlando nightclub

 

Multiple people have been injured after a shooting at an Orlando nightclub early Sunday morning, according to Orlando police.

According to investigators, a gunman opened fire inside the Pulse nightclub located at South Orange Avenue and Kaley Avenue around 2 a.m.

According to witnesses a man pulled out a gun near the entrance and opened fire on people inside. Some witness say the gunman closed the front doors and kept shooting.

He fled the scene, but continued to fire shots as he heading down the street toward Orlando Regional Medical Center.  ORMC is currently on lockdown. Reportedly other hospitals in the area, Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies, are also on lockdown.

According to Orlando police, the gunman is dead.  Police also said the shooting is a mass casualty situation, but did not release a number.

Pulse Orlando posted on its official Facebook page earlier this morning: “Everyone get out of pulse and keep running.”

Multiple law enforcement agencies reported responded to the scene, including the Orlando Fire Department’s bomb squad.

This strikes me as an attempted hit on someone that went pear-shaped.

Sounds like two shooters too if one fled the scene toward the hospital but no distinction is made in the story. You make a good point.

Yes, since CNN reports that the police detonated a device at the club and then declared the shooter dead at the club.
CNN had video of the police shooting at the nightclub earlier.
Yet there are multiple reports that there was a shooter at the hosptial.

Agreed. I'm not sure how this became a lone gunman scenario with "shooter dead" but sadly we have all learned it's helpful to copy and paste part of the story text for posterity since what's at the end of any link sometimes changes dramatically. Very sad story. Senseless.

Keep in mind that it is entirely possible that person seen running toward the hospital could have been a bystander simply running like hell blindly, or if they had their wits about them, running for medical help. Imagine you're at the doors of a venue, and someone walks up & starts shooting (probably at someone specific) Everyone's going to scatter ASAP.

I have to disagree.

If the shooter was white, their picture would already be online and part of the story.

If not their picture, at the very least the narrative would be a "white male began firing", from the lack of picture or that single word (white) it is safe to assume that the shooter(s) was not white this time.

Not being a "snowflake", just going by what is and is not reported in the media (and how) after every shooting event.

*prayers to the victims, to the families that lost loved ones and to those whose lives have been shattered by this hate, no matter the color from which it came.

There was a gay pride thing in Gloucester yesterday and while my daughter was dragging me round the shops she asked why they needed rallies now that being gay wasn't a crime and they had the same rights as the rest of us.

Shootings like this are why.
Poor people getting targeted like that.
Just awful.

Except they were shooting...and running, at least according to witnesses.

Multiple dead inside the club remaining.

No number given, yet.

42 victims taken to the hospital.

This is my old stomping grounds and my heart just breaks for these folks.

Hearing the interviews with people who can't find their loved ones yet. the hospital has taken family/friends inside to give info on their loved ones so it concerns me that the people who have had no word on/can't find their folks are the victims still inside the club.

Just announced possible 20 dead!

Good news that.

It seems, so far to fit the definition of domestic terrorism.

IMO

Big Reddit thread linky

One poster mentioned this:


Twitter survivors are saying the shooter is white/male

They don't know the other


Still unconfirmed, but it's about all there is to go on for ethnicity.
