An attack early Sunday morning at Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, left 50 dead and another 53 wounded, according to police. The shooter has been identified as Omar Mateen, who allegedly called 911 from the club to pledge allegiance to ISIS. The shooter's father said his son had become angry over "men kissing."
President Obama has called the attack "an act of terror."
