Official: Gunman in Disney area before attack
ORLANDO - A U.S. official says the FBI has determined that nightclub shooter Omar Mateen was in the area of Disney World at some point before the attack unfolded, though it's unclear for what purpose.
The official briefed on the investigation who was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke Wednesday on condition of anonymity.
Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer said Mateen drove around the Orlando area Saturday evening, going from one place to another, before he opened fire at the gay nightspot about 2 a.m. Sunday. Forty-nine people were killed and more than 50 injured.
