Pulse survivors sue Omar Mateen’s employer G4S, wife.
Pulse shooting survivors that have not spoken out before told of the horrific night they were permanently disabled as their lawyers announced Wednesday they filed a lawsuit, claiming that the mass shooting could have been prevented.
During a news conference Wednesday in Aloft Downtown Orlando Hotel Attorney Antonio Romanucci said the lawsuit was filed against shooter Omar Mateen's employer, the international security company G4S, and his wife, Noor Salman.
On June 12, Mateen opened fire on the south downtown Orlando nightclub, killing 49 people and injuring more than 50 others. A more than 3-hour standoff ended when Orlando SWAT killed Mateen.
Survivor Ilka Reyes described the confusion when the shooting started that early Sunday morning.
