President Obama on the Tragic Shooting in Orlando

(SL) – President Obama spoke to the nation following the domestic terror attack in Orlando, Fl. 29-year old Omar Mateen, a security guard, opened fire in Pulse Nightclub – a popular LGBT club killing 50 people and critically injuring 53. Mateen had been on the FBI’s radar for a couple of years, but investigations left authorities with nothing to go on. Mateen’s father told MSNBC that Omar was extremely angry after watching two men kiss in Miami. His motives remain unclear but there is word that he was an ISIS sympathizer.

Watch President Obama’s statement:

Read the President’s full remarks:

Today, as Americans, we grieve the brutal murder — a horrific massacre — of dozens of innocent people. We pray for their families, who are grasping for answers with broken hearts. We stand with the people of Orlando, who have endured a terrible attack on their city. Although it’s still early in the investigation, we know enough to say that this was an act of terror and an act of hate. And as Americans, we are united in grief, in outrage, and in resolve to defend our people.

I just finished a meeting with FBI Director Comey and my homeland security and national security advisors. The FBI is on the scene and leading the investigation, in partnership with local law enforcement. I’ve directed that the full resources of the federal government be made available for this investigation.

We are still learning all the facts. This is an open investigation. We’ve reached no definitive judgment on the precise motivations of the killer. The FBI is appropriately investigating this as an act of terrorism. And I’ve directed that we must spare no effort to determine what — if any — inspiration or association this killer may have had with terrorist groups. What is clear is that he was a person filled with hatred. Over the coming days, we’ll uncover why and how this happened, and we will go wherever the facts lead us.

This morning I spoke with my good friend, Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer, and I conveyed the condolences of the entire American people. This could have been any one of our communities. So I told Mayor Dyer that whatever help he and the people of Orlando need — they are going to get it. As a country, we will be there for the people of Orlando today, tomorrow and for all the days to come.

He was later killed by police after taking hostages at the LGBT club. According to reports, Mateen, 29, is a U.S. citizen of Afghani descent from Port St. Lucie, Florida. Allegedly, he has ties to radical Islamic ideology,  Police have not yet said why Mateen attacked the Pulse club. However, his father told MSNBC that the shooting was not about his son’s religion, but that his son became very angry after seeing two men kissing in Miami months ago. He said “we are apologizing for the whole incident.”

Authorities confirmed Mateen was engaged in a shootout with police outside the night club at about 2 a.m. Mateen then entered the night club and took hostages. “The officer engaged in a gun battle with the suspect. The suspect at some point after going back inside the club fired more shots. Reportedly, Mateen was armed with an “assault-type” rifle, a handgun and a “suspicious device”.

Mateen died at the scene after he was shot by police at about 5 a.m.. He had barricaded himself in the nightclub after opening fire. Witnesses reported that some of their friends were hiding in dressing rooms and bathrooms, trying to stay safe.

Management at Pulse took to Facebook to warn people to stay away. Everyone is being asked to stay out of the area. The attack occurred during Latin Night at Pulse, the one of the largest gay clubs in Orlando. (Mateen Pics -MySpace)
