49 were killed and 53 injured early Sunday morning at the gay nightclub Pulse in the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

The shooter, Omar Mateen, reportedly vowed allegiance to ISIS in a 911 call prior to the shooting. Mateen's father has said that his son was motivated by homophobia after seeing two men kissing.
