The city of Orlando has released the names of four of the 49 killed in the a mass shooting at a gay nightclub.

The city set up a webpage to list the names of the victims whose next of kin have been notified. At 4 p.m., the list had just four names: Edward Sotomayor Jr., Stanley Almodovar III, Luis Omar Ocasio-Capo and Juan Ramon Guerrero. 


The city said it would continue to update the post as families are notified. 

“On this very difficult day, we offer heartfelt condolences to today’s victims and their families. Our City is working tirelessly to get as much information out to the families so they can begin the grieving process. Please keep the following individuals in your thoughts and prayers. #PrayforOrlando,” read the message accompanying the list. 

The FBI said it is looking into any and all connections, both domestic and international, to the shooting that also injured 53 at the nightclub Pulse. Police said they do not have a second suspect they are actively looking for and do not know of any "credible or singular threats that are facing the Orlando area or nationally."

The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria is taking credit for the attack online, and an official said the FBI interviewed the suspect, Omar Mateen, three times in 2013 and 2014 because of suspicious comments he made related to terrorism.
