Up to 20 people have been killed and more than 40 have been taken to area hospitals after a domestic terrorist attack on a gay nightclub called The Pulse in Orlando, Florida.

 

The attack began at approximately 2:20 AM, where an individual opened fire on club-goers, apparently both inside and outside the club. An officer on the scene providing security for the club engaged the terrorist. As other law enforcement officers responded, the terrorist retreated back inside the club and took hostages.

 

SWAT units raided the club approximately three hours later, where nine officers engaged and killer the terrorist.

 

A rifle, handgun and “a device” were found on the terrorist’s body.

 

We’ll update when we know more.
