In Pulse Massacre, Cops Fired Over 180 Bullets, Only Hit Gunman Omar Mateen: State Attorney

The officers who responded to Orlando’s Pulse nightclub massacre fired more than 180 rounds, but only struck the gunman, according to a report from the state attorney for Orange and Osceola counties cited Wednesday by The Miami Herald. The report claims that eight of those shots struck the gunman, Omar Mateen, who murdered 49 people after firing more than 200 rounds, and that no bullets from law enforcement hit civilians. The Herald notes that the reviews are standard practice, and are conducted every time an officer fires a gun.
