It’s yet another extremely sad moment for the country.
All caused by the deadliest shooting in the US history.
According to New York Times, a gunman identified by law enforcement officials as Omar Mateen – a 29-year-old born in New York, opened fire at around 2 a.m. at a gay nightclub, Pulse Orlando.
The incident left at least 50 people dead and 53 others injured. The suspect was later killed when in a gunfight with SWAT officers.
