ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Police say approximately 20 people have been killed inside a Florida nightclub, and at least 42 were wounded.
Authorities say the mass shooting is being investigated as an act of terrorism and investigators are looking into whether this was an act of domestic or international terror, and if the shooter was a lone wolf.
Mina says the shooter was armed with an assault-type rifle, a handgun and some type of suspicious device. Police had said previously on Twitter that there was a &8220;controlled explosion&8221; at the scene of the shooting at Pulse Orlando. Mina says that noise was caused by a device intended to distract the shooter.
The club, Pulse Orlando, earlier posted on its own Facebook page just after 2 a.m.: &8220;Everyone get out of pulse and keep running.&8221;
