Mass shooting at popular gay nightclub in Orlando: Favorite among LGBT visitors

Jun 12, 2016

LGBT tourism is under a deadly terror attack in Orlando, Florida. A source told eTN the suspect is wearing a bomb and has barricaded himself inside the Pulse nightclub. Unconfirmed numbers state more than 25 guests have been shot so far with a "long gun" - and shots are continuing.

The attack happened at 2:00 am when the club was packed at capacity.
Apparently the shooter said he has explosives and has taken hostages.

This is ongoing at Pulse, a popular gay friendly dance club in downtown Orlando at 1912 S Orange Ave, Orlando, FL 32806.

The club is a favorite for LGBT tourists visiting the US city of Disneyland.

Tweets received from inside the club say guests are being shot at random. Police is reporting a hostage situation.

More tweets received from guests inside the club are desperate calls for help. They give hiding locations for police on twitter. The club owner tweeted for everyone who can to get out and run.

In the meantime voices against gun violence in the United States are becoming louder, both in the U.S. and abroad:

If the government isn't persuaded to take action against gun violence after Orlando, there's no denying that we're corrupt.

When are America seriously going to sort out their gun laws??
