THREE YEARS AGO TODAY
I could’ve been there. It was Latin Night.
The majority of the victims were Puerto Rican.
On June 12, 2016, a 29-year-old American security guard, killed 49 people and wounded 53 others in a mass shooting inside Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, United States. Orlando Police Department officers shot and killed him after a three-hour standoff.
Pulse was hosting a “Latin Night,” and most of the victims were Hispanic. It is the deadliest incident of violence against LGBT people in U.S. history and the deadliest terrorist attack in the U.S. since the September 11 attacks in 2001
Forty-nine people were killed when a man opened fire with an assault-style rifle in an Orlando gay nightclub on June 12, 2016. Another 53 were injured.
It was the deadliest mass shooting by a single person in modern US history.
