BREAKING: Orlando Gunman Dialed 911 to Pledge Allegiance to ISIS Before Massacre

As various reports note the indications of Islamic terror behind last night’s shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando, NBC has revealed a chilling new detail about what Omar Mateen did right before he began his attack:

Undoubtedly, this will add to the reports from those close to law enforcement on the precise motivation behind the deaths of 50 people, and the hospitalization of more than 50 others.

UPDATE – 1:40 P.M. EDT: CNN reports that in addition to his pledge, Mateen referenced the brothers behind the Boston Marathon bombings in his call.
