    Omar Mateen called 911 just before the shooting and pledged allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, NBC News reports.

    Congressman Adam Schiff, a California Democrat, said in a press release that the attack appears to be an “ISIS-inspired act of terrorism.”

    He said Mateen declared his allegiance to ISIS before the assault, according to local law enforcement. Schiff is the ranking member on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and said he received a preliminary briefing on the attack.

    Mateen has no known criminal history, according to CBS News. But The Daily Beast, citing a senior law enforcement source, said Mateen was a person of interest in law enforcement investigations in 2013 and 2014. The news website reports the FBI opened an investigation into Mateen at some point, but closed it “when it produced nothing that appeared to warrant further investigation.”


    He worked as a security officer in Port St. Lucie and had a criminal justice degree from a local college. He is pictured wearing NYPD shirts in multiple photos on MySpace, but the NYPD told TMZ that Mateen had no affiliation to the department. The souvenir shirts could be bought at several stores, the NYPD said.


    Both of Mateen’s parents are originally from Afghanistan, according to CBS News. Mateen was born in New York, NBC News reports.

    He was married in 2009 to woman from New Jersey, Sitora Yusufiy, public records show. They divorced in 2011. Yusufiy told Heavy.com that she was rescued from the relationship by her family after just a few months, but the divorce took several years to be formally completed.


    Yusufiy told the Washington Post Mateen was abusive. “He was not a stable person,” she told the Post. “He beat me. He would just come home and start beating me up because the laundry wasn’t finished or something like that.”
    She said they met online and he “seemed like a normal human being,” but was “very private.” She said he wasn’t very religious and worked as a guard at a facility for juvenile delinquents.
    But when he became abusive, her father flew down to Florida and pulled her out of the house. She said her parents saved her life.

    Now this I do buy: "ISIS-inspired act of terrorism."

    This is the exact sort of terrorist our government has been fearing. That's one of the problems with 'social media.' ISIS uses this medium very well. The only thing that could have forced this guy into their hands, his ANGER.

    Like his ex said, he was a very angry man.

    JMHO

    OMG! Breaking news ................... man arrested carrying weapons and explosives on his way to the LA Gary Pride Parade. :eek:

    fwiw, I know people that are at that celebration. But I thought the parade was yesterday. :(
    Now they're saying he said he was on his way to West Hollywood Gay Pride. :confused:


    It is now coming out that while he was engaging in gun fight with LE, he was saying "Allah Abar" (sp?)

    JMHO

    PS... LA Mayor just had a news conference and said they are safe. Additional LE protection has been added.
