Police Probe ISIS Ties To Orlando Massacre:

A day after a gunman shot dead 50 people at a gay nightclub in Orlando, police investigated the attacker’s ties to ISIS and Americans grieved over the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.

Omar Mateen, 29, of Fort Pierce, Florida, carried an assault rifle and a pistol into the packed Pulse club about 2 a.m. Sunday and started shooting.
In addition to the people killed, he wounded at least 53 others, police said.
During the attack, Mateen called 911 to pledge allegiance to the ISIS terror group and mentioned the Boston Marathon bombers, according to a U.S. official.
After a standoff of about three hours, while people trapped inside the club desperately called and messaged friends and relatives, police crashed into the building with an armored vehicle and stun grenades. They killed Mateen after the rampage — the deadliest terror attack in the United States since 9/11
Law enforcement officals say Omar Mateen was the gunman.

Omar Mateen Pledged Allegiance To ISIS, Official Says:

The man behind the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history mentioned ISIS in a 911 call during the attack, but details are still emerging about his ties to the terror group.

Omar Mateen is the person who authorities say killed at least 50 people in a massacre at an Orlando nightclubearly Sunday.
The 29-year-old, who died in a shootout with police, lived in Fort Pierce, Florida. Bomb squad teams, FBI agents and police combed his apartment there for hours on Sunday. Investigators haven’t revealed what they found.
They also haven’t said what led Mateen to attack the Pulse nightclub, which bills itself as “the hottest gay bar in Orlando.”

Lin-Manuel Miranda's "Hamilton" may make history at this weekend's Tony Awards.

Why ‘Hamilton’ Became A Phenomenon:

It may be a historic weekend at the Tony Awards as “Hamilton” attempts to become the most award winning musical in Broadway history, but the show wasn’t always a phenomenon.

Creator Lin-Manuel Miranda first planted the seeds of the show at the White House’s poetry jam in 2009.
Before breaking into rhyme, Miranda explained to the audience, which included President Obama, that he was working on a concept album about someone who he thinks “embodies hip hop.”
“Treasury Secretary, Alexander Hamilton,” he said to the audience, which couldn’t help but laugh.
Miranda then led into what would become the opening song of a musical that would transform American theater.
