Gunman 'pledged allegiance to ISIS' on 911 call- report

<snip>

NBC’s Pete Williams is reporting that Omar Mateen called 911 before the attack and when the operator answered, “swore his allegiance to [Abu Bakr al-]Baghdadi”, the leader of terror group Isis.


Williams cites unnamed law enforcement sources for his report.

Earlier today Representative Adam Schiff, a Democrat leader of the House intelligence committee, said he had heard a similar account from sources.

Like many other authorities, Schiff urged caution and repeated that the investigation is an extremely early stage to be drawing any conclusions.
