6:00 pm
terror in orlando. this is "nbc nightly news" with lester holt, reporting tonight from orlando. we're back with more of our continuing coverage of the terror attack at a gay nightclub here in orlando. now the deadliest mass shooting in american history. 49 people were killed by the attacker, 53 others were injured. there are so many new questions about how a man who was once on a terrorist watch list who was interviewed multiple times by the fbi was still able to buy guns and carry out this atrocity. also under scrutiny, the police response, and whether officers should have stormed the club earlier. all of this as we learned so much about the victims, and stories continue to emerge of incredible heroism during that horrific night.
6:01 pm
for more now we return to nbc's miguel almaguer. >> this horrific crime lasted more than three hours from the time the first gunshot was fired to the last. the initial 911 call came in just after 2:00 a.m. police saying a man opened fire inside the pulse nightclub where more than 300 people were inside. a uniformed off-duty police officer was working security at the club. he went inside, engaged that suspect in a gun battle. the suspect shot back. the officer withdrew, waited for backup, and with a team of officers went inside that nightclub and again opened fire on that suspect. the officers retreated when the suspect went into a back bathroom. i want to give you a diagram of what this relatively small club looks like. the gunman was inside one bathroom with four to five other hostages, inside an add jointing bathroom there were up to 15 other hostages. investigators say they waited for some two 1/2 hours.
6:02 pm
as they continued to talk to the suspect who called 911. they then decided they had to enter the building here. and immediate imminent loss of life was likely. officers penetrated inside the bathroom and killed the suspect. they're investigating if any of the officers may have accidently shot any of the victims. but the police chief said the officers did everything right. if they didn't enter that club when they did, the loss of life would have been much higher. >> the change is when it became a hostage crisis. that's where everything changed. >> that's right. >> nearly all of the 49 victims have been identified. so many innocent lives cut tragically short. we're continuing to learn more about them tonight. we turn to gabe gutierrez for that. gabe? >> reporter: lester, good evening. many of these families learned today at a nearby senior center that their loved ones had passed. when authorities read the updated list, it was an extremely emotional day. there is a vigil under way where many people have turned out to remember the lives
6:03 pm
lost. there were a cross-section of americans celebrating life at a nightclub called pulse, of all things. they were professionals, 20-somethings that worked at the nearby amusement parks, tourists passing through town before the gunfire ripped through that club, and never seemed to stop. now, 48 of the 49 victims have been identified. these are their faces. now, here at this hospital, 29 people are still being treated, five of them are in grave condition. lester? >> all right, gabe gutierrez, thank you. the nightclub where this massacre took place just a block behind me was supposed to be a haven, a place for people to enjoy a night out, to feel safe. in fact, it was latin night. very crowded. very popular. it was opened by a woman in memory of her brother, john, who passed away of aids. the name of the club pulse, a way of keeping his heart and memory alive. matt lauer spoke with her late today. >> can you describe the phone call? can you describe how
6:04 pm
you found out about this? >> it was the most surreal phone call i've ever received. when my manager called me and told me, he was just yelling into the phone, i just didn't understand it. i couldn't wrap my brain around it. he said, we have a shooter, we have a shooter. i kept saying, what? and finally it sunk in. and i -- i can't wrap my brain around that. i just can't. >> you know every inch of that club. >> mm-hmm. >> how do you stop yourself from imagining what it was like? >> i can't stop. i can't stop imagining what that was like for them. sorry. >> it's all right. >> i don't think i'll ever stop that. >> you can see much more of matt's exclusive conversation tomorrow morning on "today." now, to more questions about gunman
6:05 pm
omar mateen's embrace of radicalism. while mateen disexpress support for radical extremists, the fbi said it's not a clear picture. our justice correspondent, pete williams, has more about the complicated puzzle investigators will piece apart. >> reporter: the fbi director says tonight that omar mateen was radicalized at least in part through the internet. but it does turn out to be a complicated picture. investigators say he pledged allegiance to isis, but also praised other terrorists who had nothing to do with isis. he claims he had family connections with al qaeda. but he also said he himself was a member of hezbollah, which is a bitter enemy of isis. his former wife, and people who work with him, say he was an angry and violent-prone man. investigators say that's the picture that emerges. as for his travel, officials say mateen went twice to saudi arabia, but the fbi said agents found nothing troubling. the saudi foreign ministry said the trips were for muslim pilgrimages. the fbi did investigate mateen after he claimed in
6:06 pm
2013 to have terrorism connections. but after a ten-month investigation, agents concluded there was nothing to it. fbi director james comey said agents are reviewing all past contacts with mateen. he says if the fbi can find a better way to predict future terrorist behavior, they'll do it. lester? >> all right, pete williams in our washington newsroom. thank you. the parents of a shooter are also speaking out tonight to nbc news. we're hearing from his mother for the first time. and his father says he has no idea what his son was planning, though he has made conflicting statements, that as pete pointed out raised questions about his own ideology. we get all of that from nbc's kerry sanders. >> i don't approve of any kind of terrorist activity. >> reporter: seddique mateen said his 29-year-old son omar destroyed 49 lives, as well as the family he left behind.
6:07 pm
his mother, did you know your son could do this? >> no, never, ever. >> reporter: emotional, she continued to speak off-camera. the gunman's wife and 3-year-old son are now holed up on the second floor of their in-laws' home. >> everybody, she cannot talk even. >> reporter: in a series of interviews over the last 18 hours, he condemned his son's rampage but also brought up pakistan, blaming the country for allegedly funding radical islamic groups. >> the taliban, al qaeda, this isis came from pakistan. >> reporter: the gunman's father has a long digital footprint posting online, hosting a tv show, traveling to washington as recently as april, to try to lobby congress and the state department to influence afghanistan's political future. he's previously spoken favorably about the taliban.
6:08 pm
he says, our warrior brothers in the taliban movement are rising up, god willing. but in an interview with nbc news, he denounced that former support. >> one last question. you sound like you're offended when we ask you about the postings online that are sympathetic to the taliban. >> sir, taliban is a group. you keep asking me like ten times. taliban is a terrorist group. >> the father there tells nbc news that he is the president of the provisional government of afghanistan. and that the taliban tried to kill him in 2013. meantime, here at the apartment where his son lived, where the gunman lived, the fbi has searched -- served a search warrant, taken items here, as well as the computer from his father's house to see if they can determine what radicalizes american-born muslims. lester? >> all right. kerry sanders, thank
6:09 pm
you. let's turn now to the political firestorm erupting on the presidential campaign trail after this awful tragedy. donald trump today going on tv and he seemed to be suggesting that maybe president obama doesn't want to stop terrorists. nbc's katy tur has that story. >> reporter: donald trump taking a dark turn, suggesting president obama can't stop terror, because he doesn't want to. >> he doesn't get it. or he gets it better than anybody understands, and either one is unacceptable. >> reporter: late today, the white house pushing back. >> look at the president's record. it speaks for itself. that record includes a lot of dead terrorists. >> reporter: trump also going head-to-head with hillary clinton, in dueling addresses on national security. while trump attacks, falsely criticizing clinton's stance on guns -- >> she wants to take
6:10 pm
away americans' guns. admit the very people who want to slaughter us, let them come into the country. we don't have guns. let them come in. let them have all the fun they want. >> reporter: clinton didn't name her republican rival and said calling for the same unity in the face of fear after 9/11. >> we did not attack each other. we worked with each other to protect our country and to rebuild our city. >> reporter: trump messaging today, the same as it was after the terror in san bernardino, paris and brussels. one rushed to tweet self congratulations. appreciate the congrats. thank you for giving me credit. i'm proven to be far more correct about terrorism than anybody. the tweets often coming before offering condolences. two cast down on american muslims -- >> they have to work with us, they have to cooperate with law enforcement, and turn in the people who they know are bad. and they know it. >> reporter: and three extend that doubt to president obama. >> there are a lot of people who think maybe he doesn't want to get it. a lot of people think he doesn't want to know about it. >> reporter: trump is going farther to the right. hoping the same
6:11 pm
extreme rhetoric he championed in the primary will work again in november. now, donald trump is banning another news organization from attending his rallies. the "washington post" joins at least eight other organizations that have been banned at one point or another. lester? >> all right. katy tur, thank you. also in focus tonight is the assault weapon used in this attack. the ar-15, a weapon of war, able to be legally purchased by americans, is a weapon that has been used repeatedly in mass shootings on u.s. soil in recent years, from orlando, to newtown, connecticut. nbc's peter alexander has more. >> reporter: at a gun shop near atlanta today, a stampede of buyers. more ar-15 rifles sold each hour than a typical day. >> normally we might sell three or four a day. but we've been selling about ten an hour. and right around lunchtime we were selling about 15 an hour. >> reporter: the ar-15, the country's
6:12 pm
most popular rifle, now a symbol in both sides of the fierce gun debate. to owners they're fun versatile and accurate. to critics, they have no practical application, a weapon of war with a violent record. 27 dead at sandy hook, 14 in san bernardino, 49 in orlando. gun rights advocates say the problem suspect the weapons, it's the shooter. >> they were terrorists, and they were looking for a way to kill as many people as they could before they went down themselves. >> reporter: montgomery county maryland police chief tom major said officers are now forced to compete with criminals carrying similar weapons. built for the military, not for sport. >> from a law enforcement perspective, from somebody who's been a cop for 40 years, i think we'd be safer if those kinds of weapons were not so readily available. >> reporter: the national shooting sports foundation estimates the number of ars in the u.s. has soared to more than 8 million. and today gun manufacturers saw their stock prices surge.
6:13 pm
while the orlando shooter bought his weapons legally, president obama again today warned about americans' access to such powerful guns. on pbs, ten days before the orlando shooting, expressing frustration about efforts to keep guns out of terrorists' hands. >> if he wants to walk into a gun store or gun show right now and buy as much -- as many weapons and ammo as he can, nothing's prohibiting him from doing that. >> reporter: legislation to restrict gun sales has gone nowhere. after the so-called assault weapons ban expired in 2004, efforts to reinstate it failed. most recently, in 2013, with 15 senate democrats joining almost every republican voting against it. a separate house bill last year, largely ignored. in the eyes of the law, the ar-15 is no different than any other rifle. in most places a guy can take one home today. peter alexander, nbc
6:14 pm
news, washington. >> still ahead tonight, the emergency trauma surgeons who sprang into action to save lives after the attack here in orlando.
6:15 pm
6:16 pm

6:17 pm
one, and two, and three patients in. then another patient came, and another patient came, and another patient came. >> reporter: they would admit 44 patients, six trauma surgeons, and hundreds of staff responding to the deadliest mass shooting in american history. >> almost a traffic controller. he was looking at the patients, identifying who needed to go, and then sending them to the operating room with one of us. >> how is it in the middle of that you're able to make life-and-death decisions? >> you don't have another choice. those people are depending on you. and you're there, and you've got to do it. >> looking back, and now that the rush of it, or the chaos of the initial part of it is the least is done, now how do you look at it? >> proud that we were able to do what we did for sure. >> this is the worst and best day of my career. i think we would all say that. >> i think one thing to point out is gun violence is nothing new to all of us. you know, everybody's hearing about this tragic day. but that's something
6:18 pm
that we see and care for every day. >> but the gravity of the overall situation, when it does finally sink in, i went home and just grabbed my wife and kids, and was unbelievably grateful that i had family to go home to. >> and thanks to them, 35 survivors at this hospital can do the same. jacob rascon, nbc news, orlando. >> and we're back in a moment with what this attack reveals about the terrifying reach and influence of isis in the u.s.

federal officials have revealed that the
6:21 pm
orlando shooter had traveled to the middle east at least twice. though there is no evidence at this time that he went to join or train with extremists. but as nbc's richard engel reminds us, isis has had success recruiting americans who are just a click away. >> reporter: the massacre in florida is the latest in a string of isis so-called lone wolf attacks that started small and crude, and grew increasingly deadly. in 2014, a man with a hatchet attacked cops on a new york subway platform. a year later, two gunmen shot up a convention by a right-wing group urging members to draw muhammad cartoons. then came mass casualties in san bernardino. but who are the perpetrators? u.s. officials say about 250 americans have tried to, or succeeded in joining isis overseas. a recent nbc news investigation into 15 americans who went to syria about two years ago found them to be misfits, lost souls,
6:22 pm
seduced by isis' propaganda. including molt from new york who is now in u.s. custody. look molt from new >> it's deceptive. it promotes utopia. it promotes an image of islam as a place. >> reporter: the recruits we found came from all economic backgrounds, with active fbi investigations in all 50 states. >> we are looking for needles in a nationwide haystack, but we're also called upon to figure out which pieces of hay might some day become needles. >> reporter: officials say american authorities are these days doing a better job at stopping isis recruits from going overseas. but that has presented new challenges. >> more recently we've seen them call on people to attack and kill where you live. >> so it's isis telling people, don't come to syria and iraq, stay at home. is that worse from an american law enforcement
6:23 pm
perspective? >> you need to think about both. >> reporter: there's a flip side to the crackdown on isis travel, and to attacking the militants in iraq and syria. it is that the recruits simply don't come to this part of the world, but arm themselves and attack at home. lester? >> richard engel tonight, thank you. when we come back, the outpouring of support for the victims from around the world.
