Daily Mail UK is reporting a text message between a mother and her son who was at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida during the terror attack which is now being called the worst mass shooting in US history.
At least 50 are known dead, and the death toll is expected to rise.
The UK’s Daily Mail reports:
Mina Justice was outside the club trying to contact her 30-year-old son Eddie Justice, who texted her when the shooting happened and asked her to call police.
He told her he ran into a bathroom with other club patrons to hide and then wrote ‘he’s coming.’
‘The next text said: “He has us, and he’s in here with us,”‘ Mina Justice said. ‘That was the last conversation.’
A video interview with the mother was posted:
Omar Matten, the terrorist who attacked patrons of the club, was killed in a gun battle with Orlando SWAT. His parents are from Afghanistan.
Video of police attending victims. Gunshots rang out.
Democratic Senator Bill Nelson came on FOX News and said the night club terror attack may be connected to the killing of singer Christina Grimmie on Friday in Orlando. Grimmie was a devout Christian who was a contestant on NBC’s “The Voice.”
