50 dead, 53 wounded in Orlando Massacre: Deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history

The audio report included in a 10:42 EDT Reuters report on the massacre has the reporter telling an eyewitness he was interviewing that there were reports of a second shooter; the eyewitness replied that if there was a second shooter he didn't see him and that most people in the club were face down on the floor in an attempt to avoid the bullets. From an earlier report from HuffPo, updated at 10:55 AM EDT:
Javer Antonetti, 53, told the [Orlando] Sentinel that he was near the back of the dance club when he heard the gunfire.
“There were so many [shots], at least 40,” he said. “I saw two guys and it was constant, like ‘pow, pow, pow.’”
The Reuters report seems to reflect an updated police description of the attack; HuffPo earlier mentioned that the police were describing the attack as an act of "domestic terrorism" but Reuters describes it as a "terror attack."
