50 Killed in Orlando Shooting, Worst in US History

Gunman Omar Mateen has shot to death 50 people at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida - the worst such shooting in US history. 20 minutes prior to commiting the act, he called a news station and pledged allegiance to ISIS while also praising the Tsarnaev brothers who bombed the Boston marathon.

Mateen, whose family is from Afghanistan, had previously been investigated twice before by the FBI for Islamist extremist leanings.
