The Pulse nightclub shooting on June 12, 2016 was, at the time, the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history, leaving 49 dead.

What if more victims could have lived? This year a peer-reviewed study concluded 16 victims died with potentially survivable wounds.

49 people were killed in the Pulse Nightclub shooting in 2016. But an investigation from Health News Florida's Abe Aboraya and Pro Publica finds some people may have survived if paramedics had been allowed inside the club sooner.

This week on Florida Matters we hear that story and talk about how response efforts have changed since the massacre.


The suspect in a deadly shooting at a Florida video game tournament had previously been hospitalized for mental illness, according to court records in his home state of Maryland reviewed by The Associated Press.

Brice Hayes searches the hallways and classrooms at Charles S. Rushe Middle School for an active shooter.

A Pasco County deputy tells him how to point his gun and scan the rooms. Suddenly he finds the shooter in a classroom and opens fire.

Hayes was one of the trainees at an active shooter training for new school safety guards held Friday by the Pasco Sheriff’s Office.

The Tampa Police Department will host its third Active Shooter Awareness seminar Thursday night.

The sessions are modeled after the Department of Homeland Security’s “Run. Hide. Fight.” initiative.

An upcoming computer video game that would allow players to re-create school shootings by stalking school hallways and racking up kills has been condemned as insensitive and inappropriate by the parents of students who were shot to death during the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
