Law enforcement sources told NBC News that the gunman who opened fire inside a Florida nightclub early Sunday on June 12th, 2016 –¬†shooting over one-hundred (100) people – had called 911 moments before and¬†swore allegiance to the so-called Islamic State¬† – the gang¬†of militant and religious fanatics who now request¬†to be called Daesh.

So the Daesh¬†terrorists later announced¬†that an “ISIS¬†fighter¬†had carried out the attack“.

Their claim did not clarify if they were directly involved, or merely taking credit for the actions of an American citizen with probable mental health problems. Shooter Omar Mateen, age twenty-nine, was born in New York and lived in Port St. Lucie on Florida’s eastern shores.

Mateen, who was carrying a handgun and AR-15-type rifle, died after a SWAT team stormed the club. The shooter worked in security, and records show that he had both an active security officer and firearms license, according to police statements.

To date fifty people are reported dead, and fifty-three people were injured by the shooting, with many in critical condition.

I have removed this video to make space on my server for new videos. We have a wide variety of films to watch in the Video section.

But as investigators try to determine whether radicalization may, or may not have been the motivation behind Mateen’s attack inside the Pulse nightclub, his family believes he was pushed over the edge by hate against the LGBT community.

Yet, at least four regular customers at the Orlando nightclub said that they had seen Omar Mateen there before, the regulars told Orlando Sentinel  in an interview.

Perhaps it was not one or the other, but a combination of several contributing factors, starting with the inner turmoil he must have been struggling with as a gay Muslim. Then consider that he may have an untreated chemical imbalance, or un-diagnosed mental health illness, all of which could have triggered this tragedy; the world may never know the why.
