On Sunday, 2-20 am, Omar Mateen entered a gay nightclub 'Pulse' in Orlando, Florida and gunned down 50 people, injuring many more.

During the time that he attacked, he also made a phone call to the police and pledged allegiance to the Islamic State (IS). He was shot dead by the Orlando police around 5 am.

In nearly 3 hours time, the damage that Mateen had dealt could easily be regarded as one of the worst shootouts in the United States.

Mateen's ex-wife said, he was possibly mentally ill.

These are some of the photographs from several vigil marches across United States mourning the loss of lives.
