Woman's Snapchat message catches audio of gunshots fired in Orlando nightclub

NH1.com

ORLANDO - A woman's Snapchat story showed a message where gunshots could be heard in the background at Pulse Nightclub during the deadliest shooting in U.S. history.

A man posted a video of his friend's Snapchat account. In the last part of the video, gunshots can be clearly heard.

The woman, identified by the poster is Amanda Alvear, was on the list of victims released by the City of Orlando on Monday morning.

The killer, who died in a gun battle with a SWAT team early Sunday, was identified as Omar Mateen, a 29-year-old American-born Muslim who worked as a security guard in Florida. FBI officials said they had investigated him in 2013 and 2014 on suspicion of terrorist sympathies but could not make a case against him.

Wielding an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle and a handgun, Mateen opened fire at the crowded Pulse Orlando club in such close quarters that the bullets could hardly miss. He was gunned down after police used explosives and a small armored vehicle to punch a hole in a wall and allow dozens of club-goers to escape, police said.

WARNING: The video could be disturbing to some readers. Please proceed with caution.
