record and was working as a security guard before the attack. mateen was married for a second time and had a 3-year-old son. jeff pegues has a closer look at his background include something possible warning signs. jeff, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. there were signs omar mateen was unstable and a threat to people close to him and others. during the mass shooting, he wanted everyone to know that he was responsible. cbs news has learned that he was in contact with 911 dispatchers multiple times pledging his allegiance to isis and even invoking the names of the boston marathon bombers. omar mateen had been contacted by u.s. law enforcement at least twice in recent years. after traveling to saudi arabia in 2012 to attend the hajj, an annual pilgrimage to mecca, he surfaced on the fbi's radar a year later. in 2013, co-workers said he'd madenf
terrorist ties. the fbi's ron hroppe is leading the investigation into the orlando attack. >> mateen was interviewed twice. ultimately we were unable to verify the substance of his comments, and the investigation was closed. >> reporter: in 2014, he came to the fbi's attention again. this time because of contact he had with moner abu salha, the first american suicide bomber in syria. mateen was again cleared. despite fbi ininquiryies, he was not on any list that prevented him from purchasing a weapon. >> he purchased two firearms, a handgun and long gun, in the last two days. sitora yusufie had married him but only for four months saying he had become volatile and abusive. >> four months after we were married,
and would get mad out of nowhere. >> reporter: mateen's father has posted long rambling videos on line regarding afghan politics. he told cbs news he visited with his son the day before the shooting and saw no sign that he so far, there is no evidence mateen's actions were directed by isis, but his pledge to the group suggests that he was at least inspired by isis ideology. cbs news has learned that mateen previously worked as a security guard for a gated retirement community and for a florida court house as shown in this photo obtained by local station cbs 12. the fbi is reviewing mateen's calls to 911 and digging deeply into his life and associations for more answers. gayle? jeff, thank you very much. the fbi spent the night here combing back to you omar mateen's home in ft. pierce, on
florida's atlantic khocoast. the gunman lived two hours from the scene here in orlando. investigators also seized evidence from mateen's father's home in port st. lucie, florida. we have more on the latest. david, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, gayle. we are a few miles from where are you at the crime scene. this is'e0 where the fbi say man who committed the worst crime in american history lived. this complex is where the gunman lived. it is a fond descript apartment. -- a nondescript apartment. there's a wreath on the door, but nothing that would draw your attention. it took a while for fbi to get a search warrant. we're told no explosives were found. we have video from overnight and earlier in the evening when the fbi made entrance to the property of the apartment but then backed away out of an abundance of caution to make sure there were no explosives, maybe a booby trap
set up to harm investigators or people who lived in the complex. neighbors were evacuated. a robot was brought in to check for explosives. none were found initially, and none have been found since. south of here where we are in the city of port st. lucie, there was a property we're told that is connected to the mateen family that was also searched by federal investigators. several bags of evidence were taken away from the property, as well as a mac computer. we're told three vehicles at that property were searched. back here where we are this morning, this toyota camry has fbi evidence stickers alongside of it. this vehicle was also searched by the fbi. and when we looked in the front window, there's a search warrant seizure sheet that actually lists some of the articles that were taken. the fbi has left the scene. it is unclear if they will come back. as of this morning, they have not detailed exactly what was found. >> thanks, vi
florida governor rick scott is with us. he just, he just has requested an emergency declaration from president obama. governor scott, good morning. good to have you here. the world is looking this morning and feeling the pain of florida and orlando, florida, and the people injured and dead. i have three questions. they want to know what happened, they want to know about the victims, and they want to know about the gunman. tell me first it you seeking an emergency declaration. >> sure. i called a declaration, emergency declaration yesterday to make sure we had all the state resources. we wanted to make sure we had the federal resources. the fbi has worked hard with local law enforcement. they've worked very hard and worked together very well. this is clearly terror, and you think about the families, this is -- we have a list of people, there's a big puerto rican community.
other day, and one of the victims worked there, louis gomes. you feel sorry for the families. >> the horror of this is the victims, and the horror of this is how long it went on. >> you have to appreciate law enforcement, fortunately they had an officer off duty working at the time. you know, we lost so many lives. think of how many more lives could have been lost. and the thoofrs we-- the office that went into the building not knowing what was going on in there. they put their lives at risk. we saw one get hit in the helmet. two inches lower, he would have been dead. >> i do keep thinking, to charlie's point, the horror of this. you join the roll call list nobody wants to be -- aurora, san bernardino, certainly newtown. after newtown people thought finally something will change, we'll get the assault rifles
the streets somehow. you have a good record with the nra. are you rethinking your position on banning so-called assault weapons? >> right now is a time to mourn and think about the families. we'll have plenty of time to think about what we do after the fact, how we constantly try make our society a better society. i've got daughters. i even have grandchildren. i don't want anything to ever happen to them. how do we always improve our society? right now we need to mourn with these:3 families. all the names are being released. families are getting to be -- think about what it was like yesterday not knowing. >> why are you letting them know, there was one victim there, i want to find out about my friend. how can you accelerate that? >> all of us want information. talked to the fbi about it. as family members reached out and i talked to family yesterday, they wanted information like we all want information. >> we all do. >> they're putting out more
of names. every individual is a story and a family. >> and you said you know the street, you know the area and the people. >> i'm on the street driving through orlando a lot. i've had businesses here. >> okay. >> it's frustrating. >> governor, thank you. our sympathy for the people of orlando. flags at the white house this morning are at half staff in the hours after the attack, the president expressed his condolences. >> this a sobering reminder that attacks on any american regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation is an attack on all of us and on the fundamental values of equality and dig night that define us as a country. no act of hate or terror will ever change who we are or the values that make us americans. >> this morning the fbi

attack on a gay nightclub. >> the gunman who was killed by police, omar mateen, he had pledged his allegiance to isis during the attack. he was carrying a rifle and a handgun that he bought legally in the past week. >> after the attack, donald trump tweeted, "is president obama going to finally mention the words radical islamic terrorism? if he doesn't, he should immediately resign in disgrace." the presumptive nominee joins us now on the telephone. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> let's begin with this in terms of what you are saying should be done right now in the after makt of this attack. >> we need just, we need vigilance -- we need justice, we need vigilance, we need great intelligenat
we started to have them and let go. we had them in new york city as an example, probably the best in the nation. the mayor of new york city, the new mayor, just broke it up and disbanded it. he thought it was inappropriate. it's unbelievable. that was one of the best of all systems. and we need intelligence gathering like never before. interestingly, the community, the muslim community, the community where this maniac lived and where others lived -- as an example in san bernardino, they found bombs all over the apartments and all over the floors. many people saw that. they don't report these people. the people know who the bad apples are, where the bad seeds are. they don't report them. there's very little reporting of people like this. you'll find out shortly, you'll find out that many people knew he was bad. many people knew he had some idea for an
happens all the time. almost all the time. we need much better intelligence. >> we are trying to find out as much we can. obviously the fbi and law enforcement authorities -- there are two things here. number one, you have said and made known your program to eliminate and stop muslim from coming into the cotry. this and other incidents have involved people already in the country and what is happening to them and how they are radicalized. >> right. right. they're becoming radicalized by people coming in. they're also becoming radicalized by family members and others. you saw that with san bernardino where we had somebody in the country. he became probably radicalized through her when he married, probably through her. she came to the country. we have to stop people coming in from syria. hillary clinton want a 500% increase of people coming in
to the country now who are just as bad, if not worse, than the main amtrak that did this -- maniac that did this horrible act. if we don't get smart, like very smart very fast, we're going to have these acts taking place all over. we have to start having a tremendous -- sadly -- a tremendous control situation. if we don't -- we're fighting an enemy without a uniform. there's no -- >> let me ask -- let me interrupt -- let me interrupt you for a second. >> we're fighting a war without uniforms. >> donald trump, we hear you, donald trump. this is the problem that a lot of people have with your words -- the ban that you're calling for, these people were already here. they worry that your words just inflame a situation and get people who weren't even thinking about doing these kind of acts, turning them against us. do you worry about enflaming an already very
situation? do you worry about that? >> well, did you see what happened yesterday? they weren't about my words -- >> yes. >> look at the people that were killed yesterday. and this will -- this is just the beginning, okay. this is going to get worse and worse. i see yesterday where they announced on isis radio -- can you believe they have a radio station, they actually have a radio station that we haven't talken out. by the way, those are the things that enflame. they use the internet better than we do. they create radio stations. how are they allowed to have these things? and those are the things that enflame. and we better get smart to it because believe me, all i want is safety. i want safety for this country. what happened yesterday will happen many times over with the president like obama that doesn't even want to use the term radical islamic terrorism. he doesn't want to use the attorney general. and clinton won't -- term. and clinton'
hillary won't use it. the reason she won't use it, she's afraid to offend her boss because she doesn't want to go to jail. >> obviously a lot of people differ with that suggestion. >> a lot of people agree with it. >> let me thank you for coming. >> before you go, you used to be? favor of banning assault weapons -- you used to be in favor of banning assault weapons. are you rethinking about your position? >> i changed positions because we need protection in this country. we need protection. we have to have protection. people have to be able to protect themselves. the bad guys have them. the bad guys have them, we need protection in this country. >> what are you going to say in your speech today? >> i was going to talk about hillary clinton, which is very easy to do for me. i understand her. >> okay, but -- >> and she's -- >> what are you going to say? >> now we're going to be talking about -- i think it was
now. i had a massive rally tonight in new hampshire. i've canceled that, but we're going to make a speech on the event yesterday and what we have to do to prevent that. >> thank you very much, donald trump. >> thank you very much. thank you. heroism amid the tragedy in orlando. >> ahead, how a survivor of the massacre put his safety on the line to help a wounded victim. plus, what role did isis play in this horrible night of terror? former cia deputy director michael morrell explores the ties to terrorism.

♪ i'm charlie rose with gayle king in orlando. norah is off. we have new information this morning on the deadliest terror attack in america since 9/11. a short time ago, the fbi revised the death toll to 49, plus the gunman. people around the world paused last night remember those shot to death at a gay nightclub here. officials have identified all but one of the 49 victims. all the bodies have been removed from the club. another 53 people were injured including a police officer who tried to stop the gunman. >> officials say that omar mateen pledged his allegiance to isis during a 911 call during the shootings. he carried an 5
he had apparently bought them both legally within the last week. a third gun was found in his car. mateen apparently had no criminal record and worked as a security guard. the fbi had investigated him twice about possible terror ties, but they had cleared him. police say mateen parked next to the pulse nightclub at around 2:00 and walked in and started shooting. they had just issued the call for a last call, last dance. around 5:00 a.m., after a three-hour standoff, police stormed the club and killed the gunman. this video shows the heavy gunfire that took place.

redouble our efforts to defend our country from threats at home and abroad." she also said, "weapons of war have no place on our streets." the presumptive democratic presidential nominee joins us on the telephone. secretary clinton, thank you for coming this morning. a morning in which the world is mourn being what happened in orlando, simply a block and a half from here where 49 and the gunman lost their lives. you have said we have to redouble our efforts. what does that mean, and how do we do it, and what is the urgency? >> well, charlie, first of all, i want to extend my condolences to everyone who lost a loved one. and i also am thinking about those who are in critical condition still in the hospital. and even as we figure out more about what happened,
to defend our country from the so-called lone wolves and work with our allies to dismantle the global networks that fuel this kind of radicalization. it is a complex challenge, but i am convinced we're up to it. we have the resources, the relationships, the experience to get it done. i think this is a moment for statesmanship, not partisanship. we should be coming together. we should be trying to figure out the best way forward. i had said that we've got to go after the issue of self-radicalization. i would set up a team exclusively dedicated to detecting and preventing lone wolf attacks. that does mean more resources. it does mean making sure we're integrating all the information from every law enforcement agriculture and strengthening our communication. we'll have to work even more closely with ourh
to prevent online radicalization while we take the fight to isis to defeat them in syria and iraq. >> it is troubling that in this case this man was on the radar, had been interrogated twice by the fbi. how do we make sure there is the capacity and the tools to do something and the laws with respect to respecting the constitution, at the same time recognizing where danger is? >> that's absolutely right. this can all look obvious in hindsight. i'm not going to rush to judgment on the decisions made by career law enforcement professionals who get up every day trying to defend our nation. we have to wait to see what the investigation bears out. if we do find there are things we can improve, we should. i think it's really important, point that you made in your
whatever manpower, whatever technological abilities are needed, we have got to provide them. this is a different threat, a different kind of challenge that we face. and i want us to be sure that we're focused on providing everything that can make a difference. you know, we may find out that this was a -- a threat from this man or information about him that of followed up on. there's a lot of other threats on the radar screen that have to be followed up. what more can we do? how can we have a better data base where all of this is in there? i go back to saying that congress needs to pass the provision that prevents people who are on the no-fly list from buying guns in america. we need to make sure that people who come across the attention of
so there's just a lot this we're going to have to focus -- a lot that we're going to have to focus on. i want to make sure that ear doing everything humanly possible to equip and support law enforcement in meeting this threat. >> the people who are gripped with pain, we saw some on the streets this morning. they don't care whether it's a hate crime, terrorist crime, a mental health issue. yesterday president obama took to the airwaves again becoming consoler in chief. people have said we've heard the words, been in this situation too many times before, and nothing seems to change. what in the world is it going to take? >> i think it's going to take everything we were just discussing about upping our efforts and having an even more intense focus terrorist threats. it's also going take
we don't know all the details. what we're hearing is that this gunman used a military-style weapon to shoot down all of these people. they are using guns as they did in san bernardino, as the shooter did in orlando. we've got to make it harder for them to do that. we've got to keep weapons of war off our streets like the one used in orlando, as well as blocking suspected terrorists from buying guns. this man, you know, bought those guns legally. he was even a security officer it's reported who had access to guns. and you know, if you're too dangerous to fly in a plane, if you're too dangerous to buy a gun, if you're brought to the attention of law enforcement because of your comments about supporting violence to terrorism, you know, maybe this should also go in a data base.
this. this is not an ordinary time. we need to act with a great deal of urgency in order to protect the people who have every reason to wonder why, why is this happening, you know, why is this kind of hatred being put into action through these weapons. we've got to have a very clear mission here what that we address on the terrorist -- here that we address on the terrorist side and the gun side. >> thank you very much, secretary clinton. it shows, again, much more work to be done. thank you, secretary. the new york time this morning -- "the new york times" this morning, looking at the orlando massacre today and looking at the gunman's possibl

about 100 leads in the orlando investigation. former cia deputy director michael morrell is a cbs news senior security contributor, and he joins us now from washington. thank you very much for joining us on a very, very sad day. >> good morning. >> we all heard the gunman reached out and called 911 and pledged his allegiance during this incident. i want you to talk about how unusual that is and why is it important twlon it was a directed or inspired attack? what does that mean that he called during the attack? >> gayle, i think that's very significant because isis tells its followers that they must pledge allegiance to isis before they die. we saw this in san bernardino, and now we've seen it here. i think it's very important because it shows that he was in touch with that isis messaging. we still don't know whether this was a lone wolf attack or whether heas
directed, but we still don't know that. >> one thing that's interesting to subcommittee how much preparation must have gone into the organized way that he went about this. >> there is no dhut he spent some time -- no doubt that he spent some time thinking about this. it appears that he surveilled the location ahead of time. he must have thought through that 911 phone call. so this was premeditated in every meaning of the word. >> mike, he had been on the radar screen of authorities since about 2013 for making inflammatory comments about his co-workers. when does it go from hate speech to a threat that you need to pay attention? they investigated him and cleared him. >> so they investigated him twice. the fbi literally investigates things like that, thousands and thousands and thousands of times. they simply found nothing to follow up ono

one or two, but it was over and over and over. and you can hear it start again and then all over again. bullets being fired over and over. i couldn't believe what i was listening to and seeing. >> how do you feel in 2016 to know that you could lose your life? that he just didn't like gay people. you think what? >> like i can't step outside my house. just leaving my house is a risk. the place i always. was comfortable to go to, now i have to doublethink everywhere else i can go to. can i go to the mall and not have anything happen there? it can happen anywhere. >> is it hard to speak out now is? little, yes. it's very hard to get everything and figure out what happened and cope with everything and know how it happened and how everything went. >> thank you. it's a difficult
thank you very much. we never thought we would meet luis lopez, and he done want to meet us. he's waiting to hear if some of his friend are okay. he also told us thaty had had never heard -- that he had never heard gunshots in his life. at first they thought it was part of the music. then you find out that you're in a situation that you never thought it would be in. >> everybody who's been touched by this, all the questions we have, they have more. >> yes, they know these people. patty sheehan is orlando's first openly block commissioner, and she joins us. we're sorry to see you under these circumstances. >> i am, too. this is a horrible day for victims and families. not all the notifications have been made. for the folks out of state, we're trying to get notifications out. some of the poor families -- >>

supporting my community. if they want to have a change of heart, i nung that. if this -- i understand that. if this isn't an example of how people with hurt and harm, nothing will change their minds if this doesn't. >> can you tell us anybody who saw the gunman and what they toldy? >> yeah. because i had a young man that talked to me saying at first he thought it was music and that -- then people started scattering. several had gone in a remember that and dressing room. that's why may much trying to get away from the gunman. >> we heard people freed only after someone ripped the air conditioner out. they were climbing out -- >> yes. >> then they would say there were moments of silence when you stop voog shooting -- stop shooting, and he was reloading the clip. >> reporter: people were
