Orlando and Active Shooter Advice

On 12 June 2016, a lone gunman armed with an assault-style rifle and a handgun opened fire at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, killing at least 49 people and injuring over 50 others in what was the deadliest terrorist attack on US soil since 11 September 2001 and the deadliest mass shooting in US history.

The attacker appeared to have been motivated by a combination of Islamic radicalism and personal grievances towards the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community. 

After nearly three hours of shooting and a hostage situation, police and SWAT team members used an armored vehicle to breach a door to the club, allowing people to escape and for police to shoot and kill the gunman.

In an effort to keep our members and clients informed about potential threats and emerging medical and security risks, our Intelligence Team and Security Operations Team, made up of Special Operations Veterans, have prepared the following summary assessment and advice for active shooter situations.
