(Orlando, FL) -- Survivors of the Pulse nightclub shooting are suing the Orlando Police Department. According to the "Orlando Sentinel," relatives of nine of the 49 people killed in the 2016 shooting and more than two dozen survivors claim officers violated the victims' civil rights by not entering the nightclub right away to confront the gunman. Police did not enter the building for six minutes after firing the first shots at the gunman.
In that time, police estimate the gunman fired 200 rounds. City and police officials released a statement Thursday saying they have not yet been served with the federal lawsuit and couldn't comment on the allegations.
