They left their homes with the hopes they'd have fun at the club of their choice that night. Nobody could have foreseen that in the early hours of the morning a gunman would burst in, killing 50 and injuring 53 more in a shooting rampage. The world has reacted with shock following the worst mass shooting in history in the US. A gunman, who has been identified as Omar Mateen, took several people in Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, hostage.

Orlanda authorities forced their way into the club, in which about 350 patrons had been partying before the massacre, killing the gunman after a shoot-out. The club caters for the LGBT community.

Authorities have not yet confirmed whether this was a hate crime or a terrorist attack. Initial reports indicate Mateen declared allegiance to terrorist group Isis before carrying out the attack, armed with a rifle and handgun. Nine people died en route or upon arrival at hospital. President Barrack Obama, who has previous spoken out about the need for stricter gun control in light of mass shootings, is expected to address Americans on the tragedy.

The 29-year-old gunman was a private security guard and his parents, who are reportedly from Afghanistan, allegedly said he was furious after seeing two men kissing earlier this week. He was also on an FBI watchlist.
Many of the victims have not yet been identified.
