Facebook has activated its Safety Check feature on June 12 for the first time in the United States after news broke out regarding a brutal shooting incident in Orlando, Florida.
A gunman with an assault rifle terrorized a jampacked gay nightclub in Orlando, in what is being called as the worst mass shooting in the modern history of the United States. Through the Amaq news agency, ISIS has claimed responsibility for the deadly attack.
The police were able to kill the gunman, who was later identified as 29-year-old Omar Mateen, a citizen of the United States and a resident of Florida. However, Mateen was taken down after he killed 50 people and injured at least 53 others.
