ORLANDO, Fla. — An interim memorial for the 49 people killed at a gay nightclub in Florida is opening to the public.
The club’s sign was improved, and a new fence was placed around the nightclub’s perimeter. Planning and designing continues for the permanent memorial.
The Orlando nightclub was attacked by gunman Omar Mateen in June 2016. He pledged allegiance to the Islamic State during a three-hour standoff at the nightclub before he was killed in a shootout with police.
