From Orlando, Florida:

A gunman has reportedly shot several people at an Orlando, Fla., gay club early Sunday, according to multiple local reports.

A person with access to a Facebook page for Pulse, a south Orlando nightclub, issued an urgent message at around 2 a.m. telling anyone listening to “get out of Pulse and keep running.”

A WESH-TV reporter said the assailant shot at least 20 people and barricaded themselves inside the venue.

UPDATE:

This video appears to show an exchange of gunfire as police respond outside the club:

This was apparently posted on their Facebook page:

Are people tweeting from inside the club?
