ORLANDO – Sunday marks six years since the Pulse shooting – the deadliest attack on the LGBTQ community in U.S. history.
Family, friends and community members took part in a service less than two miles away from the scene of the shooting.
Forty-nine bells rang out – one for each of the victims killed back in 2016 when a gunman opened fire inside the Orlando nightclub.
Emotions ran high at a vigil held outside the Pulse memorial overnight. The event began at 1-58 a.m. The exact time the first gunshots rang out. There were hugs, tears and prayers.
A remembrance ceremony will be held there at 7 p.m.
