It was Latin night at Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, when alleged shooter Omar Mateen opened fire, leaving 50 people dead in the worst shooting in U.S. history.

Orlando Police Chief John Mina said some people trapped inside the club hid in the bathrooms and called 911.

Many of the victims were taken to ORMC, where family members gathered, hoping to get information.

Florida Hospital wouldn’t comment on whether it was treating any of the injured, but said they can check on names for families.

Mina called the mass shooting “absolutely terrible. … one of the worst tragedies we’ve seen.”
