42 people shot and injured--20 dead in Orlando Mass shooting--FUCK!

Just confirmed via a press conference in Orlando.

I know this club well---many of my Gay friends frequent it...love it. My own daughter has been there several times.

Plus---my daughter works two doors down from the Plaza---the scene of the shooting of Christina Grimmie two nights ago.

Am I concerned for her safety? You bet.

47. The newer DUers know things before it appears in news reports

the lower someone's post count, the more clairvoyant they are when it comes to certain topics.

People who want to wait for verified information have clearly been here too long.

We'll have more of this until Trump loses in November.

3. That's not what I heard

They are still investigating. The only thing they said that the suggestion of "terrorism" (whether domestic or foreign) meant that the FBI takes the lead.

9. Uh - I have the damn TV on

and he said no such thing except that they would be investigating that angle as part of the investigation.

The key take-away being that "terrorism" is considered FBI, regardless of domestic or foreign.

13. ABC is reporting it. It's still early.

FBI: There are "suggestions" shooter at Orlando nightclub had radical Islamic leanings

At a press conference on Sunday at 7 a.m., an FBI official was asked if the shooter, who was shot and killed by police, had ties to Jihadist terror groups. "At this time we're looking at all angles right now." the official said. "We do have suggestions that that individual may have leanings towards that, that particular ideology. But right now we can’t say definitively so we’re still running everything around”

18. The press conference that happened

did not start until 7:15 and the FBI agent (in charge) who came on after local & state officials, kept it circumspect -i.e., looking at all angles.

11. Got a link for that? I'm watching locally

and radical Islam has not been mentioned, but "DOMESTIC TERRORISM" has been. Is that just wishful thinking, is this a hit-and-run post? IOW, prove it now or quit it.

15. Thanks.

Not mentioned at all on the local channel, so no one really knows yet. Locally they specifically said 'domestic terrorism' so I guess we'll have to wait and see. Either way, horrific.

29. Seems most likely to me that it's "radical I-hate-gays-ism"

but of course, as mentioned, it's still early.

It is possible it is someone who had a different kind of beef with that club or someone in it. Or someone just completely mentally unstable who randomly picked it. But I'm thinking "I-hate-gays-ism" is probably the leading theory at this point.

20. Another mass shooting, innocent are dead and many hurt, when will this stop.

I attended a session by local police department on what to do in case of a active shooter, it was powerful, I dont know if I would be safe in a active shooter situation but I am aware of some possible defenses.
