US citizen Omar Mateen, 29, the suspected Islamic extremist who slaughtered at least 50 people inside a gay club in Orlando
Law enforcement sources have identified the shooter as US citizen Omar Mateen, from Port St. Lucie in Florida
He killed at least 50 people, injured 53 and took party-goers hostage before being shot dead by police
Shooter, 29, was carrying a suspicious device, possibly a suicide vest, when he began shooting in the nightclub
Police used an explosive device to distract the gunman and rescue around 30 people who had been taken hostage
Police engaged in gunfire with the man and an officer was shot in the head, but he was saved by his helmet
FBI says gunman may have 'leanings to radical Islamic terrorism' and it is being investigated as 'an act of terrorism'
Took place four miles from where The Voice singer Christina Grimmie, 22, was shot dead at The Plaza Live on Friday

Omar Mateen, 29, was 'on the radar' of U.S. officials for some time
He even shops at the NYPD Tuck Shop. So it appears a man well known to authorities works at a juvenile detention center and owns a gun in NYC of all gun control paradises. I strongly suspect this is another staged event or if it did occur an MK Ultra classic. None of the pictures seem to have the blood and gore as of yet. I guess we'll have to check for the casting call for South Florida.
Omar Mateen's ex-wife says of Omar:
"He was violent and mentally unstable
"He wasn't very religious and worked out at the gym often.
"She said in the few months they were married he gave no signs of having fallen under the sway of radical Islam.
"She said he owned a small-caliber handgun and worked as a guard at a nearby facility for juvenile delinquents.
