The ‘cool and calm’ Orlando shooter claimed ISIS allegiance

 

Orlando-Night Club-Shooting

In early June when Omar Mateen murdered 49 people and wounded 53 others in a mass shooting at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, he showed no signs of remorse or panic, according to local law officials.

President Obama called Mateen’s attack homegrown terrorism inspired by radical material accessible online. Mateen pledged allegiance to ISIS during the attack.

Orlando police say approximately 320 people were inside the club when Mateen, an Afghanistan-American, began shooting.

The day after the attack, The Gospel Coalition published an article about the five ways Christians can respond, including pray, pause, grieve, love and hope.

Pray for the families of the Orlando massacre murder victims and for the wounded as they continue to deal with the harsh realities of this mass shooting.
