Florida Pulse gay nightclub attacked in Orlando

Breaking News

A shooting has been reported at a nightclub in the Florida city of Orlando, and the attacker is said to have taken hostages.

The incident happened at the Pulse Club, a gay nightclub in the city. It posted on its Facebook page: "Everyone get out of pulse and keep running".

Video footage being shared on social media showed wounded people being treated at the scene.

No official details of the incident have yet been given.

One man who says he was inside the club at the time and posted videos of the scene, said on his Facebook page that shots had been fired inside the club and people were "screaming that people are dead".

"They are just pulling people out in stretchers loading them up," Anthony Torres wrote.

Local TV reporter Stewart Moore tweeted that he had been told by a source that more than 20 people had been shot.

He said the attacker was still inside the nightclub with hostages, and was feared to be wearing a bomb.

Photos on social media show dozens of emergency vehicles at the scene.

This is a developing story

I'm absolutely speechless. June is Gay Pride Month, so I'm guessing that this could be a hate crime. I'm having flashbacks to what happened in Paris.

I can't remember the last time a gay club was attacked in the US.

Horrific.

Reports going around that bombs are being strapped to hostages, but seemingly based on a tweet from someone saying that they have "a friend" who works with Orlando police so take with a grain of salt.

Don't go on twitter. The homophobia is alive and well. The amount of whitewashing the possible hate-crime aspect by too many is ugly. Really ugly.
