The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is trying to determine if a suspected gunman had ties to radical Islam in the Pulse nightclub shooting that left 50 dead, 53 injured in Orlando on Saturday night.
The gay nightclub shooting is one of the worst mass shootings in America’s history.
Orlando Police Chief John Mina said 30 people were rescued from the nightclub. The identities of the deceased and wounded have not been disclosed.
