Audio of Omar Mateen’s 911 calls during Pulse nightclub massacre released
Orlando police have released new audio recordings from the June 12 Pulse nightclub massacre. On the chilling 911 tapes, Omar Mateen tells a police crisis negotiator: “You have to tell America to stop bombing Syria and Iraq.” A SWAT team swarmed in about three hours after the initial 911 call, killing Mateen. In all, 49 people were killed and 53 others wounded. A judge will now decide whether to release more than 200 other calls made during the rampage.
