Tragedy: worst mass casualty shooting event in U.S. History in Florida
A second terrible tragedy has struck the Orlando, Florida area. Following Friday’s shooting of 22-year-old singer Christina Grimmie, an horrific mass-casualty event has occurred at a gay nightclub in the Orlando Area. Over 50 people are dead and many more wounded, making this the worst mass shooting event in U.S. History, to date.
The alleged shooter, Omar Mateen, was armed with a semi-automatic rifle, a hand-gun and a knife. He was killed in a confrontation with the gunman, who had taken hostages and barricaded himself in the club. He has worked as a security guard, and he’s an American muslim alleged to have ties to ISIS. Authorities are investigating and learning more about his motivations.
The management team at Face Activities expresses our condolences and extends our sympathies to the victims and their families of this unconscionable act of violence. Now is the time for all civilised people to unite against such barbarism.
