Tributes mark the one-year anniversary of Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando

Hundreds of people gathered at dawn Monday in the Florida resort city of Orlando to pay their respects to the 49 people killed by a gunman one year ago at the Pulse gay nightclub.  The shooting spree on June 12, 2016, by Omar Mateen — who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group before turning his weapons on revelers — also left dozens of people wounded.  “No matter how dark the night, the sun is always going to shine,” Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer told the gathering.
