Orlando Police: Someone broke into Pulse nightclub

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Orlando police say there was a break-in at the Pulse nightclub just hours after law enforcement released the Orlando nightclub to its owner.

Orlando police officials said on the agency’s Twitter account Thursday that the break-in occurred the previous night.

They promised to release further details later in the day.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement and Orlando police ended their control of the property on Wednesday and turned it back over to the club’s owners.

The investigation into the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history at the club is continuing.

Gunman Omar Mateen opened fire at Pulse during “Latin Night” on June 12 in a rampage that left 49 victims dead and injured 53 people. Mateen was killed by police.
