Federal Bureau of Investigation releases partial transcript of Orlando nightclub shooting calls

Tag Archives: law enforcement

Hopper said officials are "not going to propagate violent rhetoric" by giving full transcripts with no redactions.

Prior to Lynch's arrival in Orlando, he complained the administration had turned down his request for $5 million to help pay for the state's response to the massacre.

He said the initial engagement by officers minutes after the rampage began drove Mateen into hiding in a club bathroom and stopped the shooting.

"From there, we let our negotiator take over and try to negotiate this to a peaceful resolution in an effort to save lives while our SWAT team set up", Mina said. Earlier this afternoon, the area surrounding Pulse Night Club was reopened to traffic, and nearby businesses were allowed to open after ten days of suspended operations.

Fox News is told the Federal Bureau of Investigation is trying to make sense of the timing. But she said investigators haven't ruled out the possibility of other motives for the attack, and they don't yet know for sure why he targeted a gay nightclub for the shooting.

For the victims of the deadly shooting, it's insane to think they partied among their shooter only hours before.

In a 911 call from the club, Mateen pledged solidarity with the Islamic State group, and Lynch said there's no doubt, based on evidence gathered during the investigation, that he had read and absorbed extremist propaganda on the internet.

Police and federal agents are sharing new information on the gunman tonight who identified himself as an Islamic soldier.

"I think there's this misconception that we didn't do anything for three hours", Mina said.

Much of life is starting to return to normal in the neighborhood of the Florida nightclub where 49 people were massacred more than a week ago in the worst mass shooting in modern USA history.

Just like an onion, officials keep peeling back more and more layers to the shooting in Orlando.

"This will be sent to the city of Orlando and Orange County", Parks said.

That's in addition to nearly three dozen agencies set up at the Camping World Stadium to help survivors and families with short- and long-term needs.

One of the 49 victims killed in the nightclub by a Fort Pierce man who pledged allegiance to ISIS was Stanley Almodovar III, 23, of Clermont.

The assistance center is open this week through Wednesday.

Demetrice Naulings chose to flee a bathroom at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, and lived. The gunman, Omar Mateen, who used an assault rifle and pistol, was killed by police after a three-hour standoff. The other 14 patients are listed in stable condition. During this time, the shooter communicated with an OPD 911 operator and an OPD crisis negotiator, and OPD radio communications reported that victims were being rescued. The hospital treated 44 people after the June 12 shooting at the gay nightclub in Orlando. Nine died the day of the shooting.

It's not clear how much exactly the police and emergency personnel response cost, nor how the DOJ funding will be distributed.

Federal investigators promised to provide more insight as to what was happening inside the Pulse nightclub after a gunman started a deadly assault that was the worst mass shooting in modern USA history.

Lynch said the department didn't release the full details because it didn't want to re-victimize those who suffered through the tragedy. The victims also were remembered at church services and at makeshift memorials throughout Orlando.

Lynch's trip comes as the Justice Department investigates the June 12 massacre at the Pulse nightclub, in which 49 people died and dozens were wounded.
