Florida shooting: 'Multiple fatalities' in Orlando - BBC News
Police in the US state of Florida say there have been "multiple fatalities" in a shooting in Orlando.

The shooting happened early on Monday morning in the east of the city, the Orlando Sentinel newspaper reports.

It comes a week before the first anniversary of the Pulse nightclub shooting in the city - the deadliest mass shooting in US history - in which 49 people died.

The Orange County sheriff is expected to give a briefing soon.

Police said the scene of the shooting had been "stabilised", indicating the shooting was not ongoing. Reports in Florida said the deaths occurred at a business.

In last June's attack, gunman Omar Mateen killed 49 people and injured dozens more at a gay nightclub before being shot dead by police.

Not very much if it turns out the shooter is a muslim.

And that is irrespective of whether it was "terrorism" or just someone "going postal"
Well he was very vocal about how London was reacting, particularly Sadiq. If labour ever needed a credible leader my money would be on him or dan jarvis.

It would take more than a new leader to give Labour credibility in the near to medium future given what has been uttered by the loons in charge now.

CNN reporting 5 dead in Orlando, police saying no terrorism but someone going postal, nothing yet regarding the shooter.

Astonishingly enough I'm just arguing with / baiting some Septics on Dysfunctional Veterans FB page and a fair few rednecks from FLA insist that they'd shoot dead any rogue gunman - all part of their criticism of Khan and what they see as his approach to Islamist terrorism, coupled with their usual NRA stuff.

If it was a Muslim, then it's terrorism = travel ban.

If it wasn't a Muslim, then it's a mental health issue = carry on normal jogging.

Now, if it's a U.S. born Muslim citizen, then it's err..? I dunno?

Whatever it is, it has nothing to do with the 2nd amendment.

Dan Jarvis is very good but I can't see him being popular with unions. Think he'd be Conservative really.

I can't raise much of an interest in these events- they don't want to address the issues so why should I.

Its not as if they aren't a regular occurrence.
