Orlando gay nightclub massacre shooter, Omar Mateen.

US President Barack Obama said there was no clear evidence that the shooter in Sunday’s massacre at a gay bar in Orlando, Florida, was deployed by a larger foreign |terrorist network.

“It appears the shooter was inspired by various extremist information that was disseminated over the internet,” the President told reporters.

The death toll has been revised to 49.

The shooter, Omar Mateen, expressed allegiance to the radical group Islamic State, also known as ISIS, in a call to 911.
