Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims.  The most painful goodbyes are the ones that are never said.  I wish I could climb up to Heaven and give each victim a hug.

The shooter was investigated by federally authorities in the past yet the investigations were closed.  ISIS has taken credit for the attack.  The shooter had a Florida security officer license along with a state firearm license.


The shooting occurred at Pulse nightclub, located at 1912 S. Orange Ave.  Pulse is about 4 miles away from Plaza Live where Christina Grimmie was shot and killed 24 hours earlier.
