Orlando mayor says shooter drove around before attack

An official says the gunman in the massacre at a gay nightclub was driving around the Orlando area the night before the mass shooting.

Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer says that Omar Mateen drove around on Saturday night before he opened fire at the Pulse club about 2 a.m. Sunday.

Dyer says, “What I know concretely is that he was driving around that evening and visited several locations.”

When asked exactly where Mateen visited, and whether the locations included theme parks as reported in some media stories, Dyer says, “I think it’s been pretty accurately depicted on the news.” He does not give further details.
