Kimberly "KJ" Morris

Omar Mateen entered gay nightclub Pulse in Orlando at 2:02 a.m. Sunday. Armed with a .223 caliber AR type assault rifle, he fired randomly at anyone in his path.

Club bouncer Kimberly "KJ" Morris, 37, was among his first victims. She would have been an easy target positioned outside the front door, which also served as the only exit.

Pulse Orlando

Orlando Police later confirmed that 2 people were killed outside the club.

Morris moved to Orlando from Hawaii 2 months ago to help her mother and grandmother, who both live in the Orlando area.

The athletic butch lesbian was ecstatic when she was hired as a bouncer at the club in April.

"She was so excited. She'd just started working there and told me how she was thrilled to get more involved in the LGBT community there," her ex-girlfriend Starr Shelton told the Orlando Sentinel.

She was such a great person and so full of life," added Shelton, 35. She said they separated after a year when Shelton moved to San Francisco to attend school. "I can truly say heaven has gained an angel," she said.

Edward Sotomayor

Edward Sotomayor, Jr.

Edward Sotomayor Jr., 34, worked as a brand manager for a gay travel website. He loved the perks of his job, which included extensive travel to exotic locales.

Sotomayor and his boyfriend were enjoying one last dance before closing time at Pulse Nightclub's "Latin Night" early Sunday. He was gunned down minutes after the last call for alcohol.

"He was with his boyfriend and they sent me a video text from the dance floor at Pulse, trying to get me to come over from where I was at," recalled his boss Al Ferguson, who owns ALandCHUCK.travel.

The shootings started 23 minutes after Ferguson received the text from Sotomayor.

"He was super bright," said Ferguson. "He was an attractive young guy. Being in his 30s, he had accomplished so much."

Sotomayor had just returned to Orlando from Cuba in April, where he coordinated the first-ever gay cruise to the island nation since Obama lifted travel restrictions.

Sotomayor, who was popular in the gay travel industry, was the national coordinator for the "Drag Stars at Sea" cruise, which featured stars of the popular reality TV show "RuPaul's Drag Race."

"He had traveled to so many places in the world," Ferguson said. "He loved travel."
He said Sotomayor was mindful of the danger that gays faced while traveling outside of the country, particularly after the 2015 Paris attacks.

"What I will say, over and over again, was he was a person who said, 'We cannot be afraid,'" said Ferguson. "I know his friends are going to be the exact same way… we are not going to be afraid."

Peter Ommy Gonzalez-Cruz

Peter O. Gonzalez-Cruz, aka Peter Ommy

Peter O. Gonzalez-Cruz's Facebook page was changed to read "Remembering Peter Ommy" on Sunday. The 22-year-old was identified as one of the victims of the deadliest mass shooting in the U.S.

Friends and family gathered on Facebook to remember the bilingual nature lover who graduated from high school in New Jersey in 2013 and worked for UPS in Orlando.

He was also mourned on Twitter.com, where his grieving cousins left messages.

"Rest in peace to my wonderful cousin," read one. And "May you rest easy in Heaven," read another.

Luis Vielma

Luis Vielma, 22, Theme Park Worker

Luis Vielma was a fun-loving student who had plans to become an EMT, according to Josh Boesch, who worked with Vielma at Universal Orlando theme park.

"He was always a friend you could call," said Boesch, who added Vielma always went above and beyond for his friends and park guests. "He was always open and available."

Vielma's family are in mourning and couldn't be reached for comment Sunday, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Vielma's friends remembered him on social media.

Olga Glomba also worked with Vielma at Universal, where Vielma operated the Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey ride.

"He was a true friend," Glomba wrote in an email to the Sentinel. "A funny, sweet, nerdy guy without a mean side. He just wanted to make people smile."

"Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by this morning's tragedy. We stand ready to help our community in any way we can," said Tom Wilson, Chairman of Universal Parks and Resorts, in a statement on Sunday.

Orlando Police released more names of the victims Monday.

      TMZ posted a snapchat video of one of the victims and you can hear the gun fire popping off. So sad. I wish some people on here would stop being opportunists and ranting about their agenda.

      Sleep in peace to all of the victims and prayers for the families as well. I have seen some really harsh things regarding this incident and could not believe how cruel and cold hearted some people could be. Regardless of what no one deserves to be murdered and gun down like that. Families lost kids, brothers, sisters and partners and it's just not fair. I had to get off of Facebook, it was making me angry as heck. And the scary part of it all the same cruel, cold hearted and angry internet thugs can possibly act out on the hate that the have toward people.

      Countries throughout history have used the methods in order to curb actions. Yes. It is harsh to read the truth, but those people in that nightclub had every right to go home drunk, horny, tired and safe. Only times in history Islamic militants have stopped is when the Crusades fought back and the American Navy made them hurt. You must read history and not be afraid of it.

    • yes yes, ya’ll!

      Every time we do fire safety training at work, they make us watch that night club video. EVERY TIME.

      (these are just the ones since 4/20/1999)

      How do we combat these home grown terrorist. Like the Orlando shooter who was BORN in this Country. Once we've locked up and sent back every person with ties to Islam how do we stop YOU from walking into a place with a AR and shooting up the place?

    • Fabulousbrownme

      You are correct. Salman is his second wife that he was still married to when he committed this heinous act. His first wife divorced him after her family literally came down to FL and kidnapped her to get her away from him.

      What I love about Florida gay bars is everybody parties together: black, white, lesbian, men, young, old. When I moved to Atlanta in 1990, I was surprised to see gay clubs were segregated by skin color and sex! White gay men don't want black gay men in their clubs and black gay men don't want lesbians in their clubs. It's 2016 and nothing has changed. Gay clubs in Atlanta are still segregated. It's shameful. ?

      In all fairness, not all Muslims are extremists nor members of ISIS and they will share with you their Faith in peace.

      Extremists must be sorted and regulated for the protection of all even non extremist Muslims.

      This dangerous movement cannot continue to slip through the cracks of political correctness to cause such harm, destruction, and death to so many innocent people.

      God bless every victim and their families with comfort and strength for their losses.

      Ive read enough for 15 lifetimes. What are you currently reading?

    • Lisa daniels

      I checked exits too. At my we have at 4 emergency exits and probably 3 other doors. I know them all.

    • Chauncey Brooks

      Same here going back to 15th century and ancient times what was actually recorded. But no matter what I understand being a victim leads to more attacks. & once those attacks hit home you have to open your mouth and fight back.

    • Da Puppet Mistress

      So that means you not currently reading a book huh?

      Big ole ashy cunt. It's slang for feminine men. They really don't mesh well with lesbians. I never thought Sandra would say such a thing though...

    • Chauncey Brooks

      I guess the opinion triggered you darling. But wearing a t-shirt against terrorism in not trendy for a reason. Liberalism is a mental disorder for useful idiots.

    • Lisa daniels

      Exactly, Christan whites shot up Columbine and that elementary school. People kill because they want to not because god made them do it.

    • Chauncey Brooks

      was the Cuban refugee crisis that hit America only in the Scarface movie. ICE does not contain illegal immigrants. You are talking as if the camps have vanished. These new age cosmetic changes only are for show.

      I said as a nation we do not have to tolerate any act of terrorism. I have read this blog for years. You don't own it nor will you censor my opinions on the posted subject unless you censor every single commentator also. You are no authority figure .& my income, and purchasing power does not come from your labor. FOH.

      So basically nothing and that's cool. I wasn't coming at you (I'm not arguing today). Your responses when you get called out are defensive, childish and baseless.

      Bullsh*t. The man was was a radical Islamic terrorist (who supported ISIS) that did not like seeing men kiss men. Hate crime + Terrorism. Means America is @ war. & pledging to wear another rubber band in solidarity is not going to make radical Islamic terrorist stop 1400 year jihad.

      Also you and siblings it has to be hard

    • Chauncey Brooks

      Each lifetime you have not gotten any smarter or wiser. Might as well stop the 16th try.

      So no one is talking about the LA man and New Mexico man that killed up a bunch of folks too?

      See, I thought he favored John Stamos, but I can see Clooney too. He was very handsome either way.

      The FBI is giving an update.

    • MookieFly

      Definitely don't need that! They'll have screenshots like we saw you visiting here and clicking this link here. Por que? ?

    • Da Puppet Mistress

      You the one said reading a book matters. You need a book or 25 on diversity. Start with "Malala". On NYT Bestsellers list.

      Book about a girl who was shot by the Taliban over her right to education. She is also a Nobel Peace Prize winner who happens to be Muslim.

      God bless your hateful ignorant ass.

    • Let Your Soul Glow

      So sorry for your nephew's and family's loss.

    • PettyEyezPrime

      I saw something on IOB that's the truth somewhat. He's a terrorist but yts are mentally ill when they shoot up churches etc. They don't even get the hate crime charge.

    • Chauncey Brooks

      Thought police are not available. You want a final answer. History is ripe with final answers. Human behavior is not going to change if humans have control over their individual choices and actions. We as a species are not ready for a mental slavery being enforced by law from birth to death. Before ak47's people died with swords, axes, knives, sticks, rocks, hands. Chauncey Brooks is not GOD.

    • BKLYNS MAMA

      I was thinking that...they must be white....cuz we didn't hear about those shootings...they never or rarely talk about whites mass shooting....

    • Chauncey Brooks

      I live in the most diverse planet that I have ever known. & even still terrorism has happened for millions of years.

    • PettyEyezPrime

      Someone I know got shot...IN a daycare center this weekend (shot through glass entryway from street. Another 1 died earlier that day. Shot in broad daylight with people outside. I'm sorry for your loss.

    • AnonymousRose

      ? has anybody heard that there was a guman running towards the hospital and that they had hospital on lockdown, annnd what an white man involved, just asking

    • Chauncey Brooks

      She did not fight back by getting an education. She fled her home land for western shores. Nothing changed except her address.

    • Chauncey Brooks

      Diversity is a scam for useful idiots to have jobs because they choose degrees that have no use.

    • Let Your Soul Glow

      Oh, my word. My condolences. :(

    • Chauncey Brooks

      If it does not apply, let it fly. You cannot prevent people from commenting. You don;t own the site or are the total audience. Make your own blog and read it all by yourself.

    • Chauncey Brooks

      Any Person of Color (including White) in the United states of America or Western countries that has converted or converts into Islam should be arrested & placed into temporary Muslim internment camps.Then registered into a 24/hr a day global watch list (children included) and deported back to there home countries. & banned from entry into the free world if they are not legalized citizens. The military forces of the world are being very patient with a 1400 Y.O headache.

    • Mahogany

      Exactly. They're more strict with the liquor license but what about the safety of the people. No wonder so many were trapped.

    • Chauncey Brooks

      You want a safe space. Life has never been about only providing you one. See aggrieved harpy your liberal tactics work with people who will not tell you to stfu or are scared of being called a racist.

    • PettyEyezPrime

      You saying a bunch of nothing and doing a whole lot of repeating. Comment on. Yell from the top of your blog voice. I feel sorry that you're so angry and filled with so much hate.

    • Chauncey Brooks

      Hey why did you voluntarily reply. you had a choice to not even be bothered. This is not the fake VIP for the common person. You want to stifle opinions that you personally don't like. Take it up with a mental health nurse. I am not here because you invited me. I am here on my own accord. You are a pudenda that needs coddling and soothe circles. Grow up.

    • PettyEyezPrime

      Sigh. You feel better? You came here looking for a fight. We're giving prayers to the families, some may have donated (my family did) and you want to have us go backwards in the progress we have made add a people. You may have given up hope but I have not.

    • Chauncey Brooks

      I did not come here looking for anything but to read a blog that I consider entertaining and comment like all the others when they feel like it. If you call progress getting shot in a night club and being a punk in a time of war. Then that is your mind not mine. I said fight back is the only think these terrorist understand. Cry all you want online. Not my problem.

      Have you told this to others OFF the blog?

    • PettyEyezPrime

      I said NOTHING about YOUR opinions. I asked you what were YOU doing to fight the injustices you speak of

    • PettyEyezPrime

      I ask again. What are YOU doing to fight back?

    • ChocolateChick84

      Yep! Been getting pricks together all morning. People are disgusting, ignorant, and talk too much.

    • Chauncey Brooks

      Of course the brain does not separate from the body. I will go nowhere and continue to be a audience member of this blog i have read for years. Are you triggered, and wanting segregation online. Tisk. Tisk. Liberalism is a mental disorder.

      CNN has reported that the shooter had been going to the gay bars for weeks previous to his attack. He is said to have hated Blacks as well as gays. Based on past news reports what you want to bet he ran into some Black gay richard and he liked it so well it made him "question". That culo was itching for an encore and he couldn't deal with his urges. Dude's ex-wife busted him out.
