Orlando Shooting

A gunman, identified as 29-year-old Omar Mateen, killed 49 people and injured 53 at Pulse, a popular gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida on Sunday, June 12. 

Mateen, too, was killed after police broke into the building, where he was holding 30 more people hostage for several hours, and shot him. 

The night is known as the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history.
