Seems to me the Orlando Terrorist made plenty of phone calls during his “attack.” Would it be logical to conclude that during each call might have presented at least some opportunity to overpower him? This corroborates the eyewitnesses who said Omar was making calls while he was shooting, which leaves the door open to how he alone could have killed so many people and fired so many rounds. Where are the 911 tapes?
A local TV station in Orlando says the man who killed 49 people at a LGBTQ nightclub early Sunday called the station to claim responsibility for the attack before he died in a shootout with police.
The caller, who claimed to be the gunman, 29-year-old Omar Mateen, told the producer he spoke to that he committed the attack in the name of the terrorist group ISIS.
News 13 producer Matthew Gentili said he took the call about 45 minutes after the shooting started.
“It was at 2:45 a.m. when I had just received the phone call of someone claiming to be the Orlando shooter,” Gentili told News 13. “I answered the phone as I always do: ‘News 13, this is Matt.’ And on the other end, I heard, ‘Do you know about the shooting?’”
The caller then told Gentili: “I’m the shooter. It’s me. I am the shooter.”
He said he attacked the nightclub for ISIS. He then reportedly started speaking in a foreign language, thought to be Arabic, in which he sounded fluent, according to Gentili. More
