(WSVN) - The suspected Orlando nightclub gunman had been licensed as a private security officer in Florida.
State records show suspected shooter Omar Mateen held the firearms license since at least 2011. It was set to expire in September 2017.
It wasn’t immediately clear where, if anywhere, Mateen had worked as a security officer. An armed guard license in Florida requires 28 hours of classroom training by a licensed instructor.
