The death toll reached 50 and 53 others were injured after a gunfire erupted at a gay nightclub in Orlando, USA early on Sunday, the police said.Some of the reports so far note that he yelled out "allahu akbar" as well. Yet leftists still consider Christians an enemy, not Islamofascists.
The reports also stated that suspected gunman is dead and the injured have been rushed to the hospital.
There are reports that FBI had questioned the suspected gunmen way back in 2013, but didn't found anything conclusive. He had purchased a handgun and long gun just a week ago, as per initial reports.
A fighter from the Islamic State group carried out today's mass shooting inside a gay club in Orlando, Florida, an IS-linked media report said, quoting an unidentified source. "The attack that targeted a nightclub for homosexuals in Orlando, Florida and that left more than 100 dead and wounded was carried out by an Islamic State fighter," it said in a terse statement quoting a "source". Amaq, the IS-linked news agency, gave no further details.
US media reported that the gunman -- widely identified as 29-year-old Omar Mateen, an American citizen of Afghan descent -- had pledged allegiance to the jihadist group IS.
