>> At least 50 people are dead and another 52 injured after a gunman opened fire at a nightclub in Orlando, Florida early Sunday morning, in what authorities are calling a domestic terrorism incident. An off duty police officer responding to gunshots inside a popular gay dance club called Pulse at roughly 2 AM, and exchanging gunfire with the suspect.

A hostage situation quickly developed with police using a BearCat to storm the club three hours later, fatally shooting the gunman and rescuing at least 30 people.>> There were at least nine officers that were involved in the shooting of the suspect. One of our officers was injured. It appears his Kevlar helmet saved his life.

>> Authorities say the suspect was armed with an assault rifle, a handgun, as well as another unidentified device, and was not from the Orlando area.>> There was blood splattered on me. I just remember just the screaming, and I was like, are you kidding me? My God. So, I dropped down, and I'm crawling out.
00:01:03
And I'm just like, my, God, please, please, please, please. And all I could see, I was looking up and people were stepping on each other, because I got stepped on a couple of times. I was just like, please, just please, make it out, please, please. And then when I did, I saw people shot.

I saw blood everywhere. There was blood all over me. I didn't know if it was my blood, I didn't know. So I was checking my whole body.>> While authorities say the shooting appears premeditated, no motive was given. It's the second high-profile shooting in Orlando this weekend. On Friday night, Christina Grimmie, a former contestant on the TV show The Voice, was fatally shot while signing autographs after a concert.
