RESTRICTIONS: NONE For story suggestions please contact [email protected] Officials are releasing more details about the worst case of gun violence in U.S. history. The information shows a clearer picture of how the gunman shot dozens of people to death at a LGBT nightclub in Florida Sunday. Omar Mateen began firing at a police officer outside Pulse nightclub at around 2:02 a.m, the Wall Street Journal reported. Additional officers joined the gunfight and Mateen fled inside to one of the restrooms where he had between five and eight hostages. Up to 25 people were in the adjacent bathroom. At around 2:28 a.m. Mateen pledged allegiance to Islamic State during a call with a 911 dispatcher, the Wall Street Journal reported. The 29-year-old also falsely told authorities he had accomplices and explosives inside the Pulse nightclub, the New York Times reported, citing Chief John Mina of the Orlando Police Department. According to the New York Times, a SWAT team and armored vehicle later arrived at the scene. Messages from hostages prompted officials to begin a rescue operation out of fear that more killing will take place, the Wall Street Journal reported. At around 5:00 a.m., officers attempted free hostages by breaching the restroom wall with an explosive device but the blast didn’t create a big enough hole. They then rammed the wall with an armored vehicle and created a sizeable gap through which hostages were able to flee. Mateen then began another gunbattle with officers, and was soon killed. Authorities say 50 people, including the gunman, were killed in the shooting, while 43 victims remain in hospital. RUNDOWN SHOWS: 1. Shooter firing at police officer 2.

Mateen escaped inside and headed toward a restroom.” “Various reports say between five and eight hostages were in the restroom where the 29-year-old fled. Up to 25 people were in the other restroom.” “At 02:28 a.m., Mateen reportedly pledged allegiance to the Islamic State while on the phone with a 911 dispatcher. He also mentioned a bomb vest and explosives.” “A SWAT team and armored vehicle arrived at the scene after officials deemed it necessary to begin a rescue operation.” “At around 5:00 a.m. police tried to breach one of the walls of the club with an explosive device, but this didn’t destroy the wall completely.” “Officers then used an armored vehicle to smash a hole in the wall, allowing hostages to flee.” “Mateen was eventually killed following another exchange of gunfire with SWAT and police officers.” “Authorities say 50 people, including the gunman, were killed in the shooting, while 43 victims remain in hospital.” SOURCES: Wall Street Journal, New York Times http://graphics.wsj.com/orlando-shooting/ http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2016/06/12/us/100000004466754.mobile.html?_r=0 http://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/14/us/orlando-shooting.html *** For story suggestions please contact [email protected] For technical and editorial support, please contact: Asia: +61 2 93 73 1841 Europe: +44 20 7542 7599 Americas and Latam: +1 800 738 8377 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Next Animation Studio’s News Direct service provides daily, high-quality, informative 3D news animations that fill in for missing footage and help viewers understand breaking news stories or in-depth features on science, technology, and health.
