Omar Seddique Mateen, the man suspected of killing 50 people in an Orlando gay club, called police before the attack, swearing allegiance to ISIS, NBC news reported citing law enforcement sources. The connection is still being investigated.

Mateen also reportedly namechecked the Chechen brothers, responsible for the Boston Marathon Bombing of 2013.

"During a conference call with federal law enforcement officials a short time ago, Massachusetts State Police and other local law enforcement authorities learned that the Orlando nightclub gunman, during his rampage, pledged allegiance to ISIS and referenced the Tsarnaev brothers,"state police spokesman David Procopio said in an e-mail seen by Reuters.

“We’ve reached no definitive judgment on the precise motivation of the killer,” US President Barack Obama told reporters at the White House around 2:00pm Eastern time. “What is clear is that he was a person filled with hatred.”

Mir Seddique told NBC that he had seen his son become angry when two men kissed in front of his son. Seddique told NBC News, “this has nothing to do with religion.”

Seddique also expressed his condolences, saying, “we are saying we are apologizing for the whole incident. We weren't aware of any action he is taking. We are in shock like the whole country.”

The full apology tour is a go. I'm tired of this crap, we need to ban Islam again.

The fact that he called 9/11 is strange, and people reporting someone was blocking the doors so they couldn't get out.

This whole event has burnt me out.

Thanks for posting and sharing with us cin as it happened early in the morning.
