2 Orlando massacre victims were New England natives

As the nation mourns the deadliest shooting in U.S. history, we're learning more about the victims and the ones who were from New England.

As memorials across the world grow and support builds for those impacted by the tragedy in Orlando, we're learning more about the gunman’s final actions — and the lives he cut short.

The FBI says the gunman called 911 from inside of Pulse, the nightclub where the massacre took place. He also called the Boston Marathon bombers his quote “homeboys,” but there’s no proven connection so far.

We see no indication that this was a plot directed from outside the United States and nor has there been solid evidence that he was part of any kind of network.

Today, investigators revealed the names of the 49 who were killed.

Among them was KJ Morris, a bouncer at Pulse. She lived in Springfield, Massachusetts.

Twenty-three-year-old Stanley Almodovar was raised in Springfield and attended elementary school there.

His name among the first four to be listed dead.

Tonight, a vigil will be held in Orlando for those who died.

Hospital officials at Orlando Regional Medical Center say they are very optimistic all their patients, the 53 being treated for injuries, will recover.
