a SWAT truck and a bomb disposal unit have been deployed to an address associated with the man named as the shooter in a massacre at a gay nightclub in Orlando. The shooter has been identified Omar Mateen.
A media staging area has been set up about a block away from the apartment complex, located in a residential neighborhood in Fort Pierce, Florida.
Fort Pierce is about 118 miles southeast of Orlando. The apartment complex is a series of two-story buildings.
Numerous police officers and members of the FBI also area there.
Mateen’s father says he’s in shock and that he wasn’t aware of anything his son might have been planning. Seddique told NBC News that his son got angry when he saw two men kissing in Miami a couple of months ago and thinks that may be related to the shooting.
The father also says the incident has nothing to do with religion.
Officials say the shooter was among the 50 killed.
