Orlando, Florida (CNN)Gunfire erupted at a gay nightclub in Orlando around 2 a.m. Sunday, multiple people are injured and the alleged shooter is dead, police said.
It's a "mass casualty situation" at Pulse nightclub. CNN affiliate WKMG video captured club goers carrying injured people from the club.
"It's just shocking," said Christopher Hansen who was inside Pulse. He heard gunshots, "just one after another after another."
"It could have lasted a whole song," he said.
"Everyone get out of Pulse and keep running," the nightclub posted on its Facebook page shortly after the violence began.
Orlando police warned residents to stay away from the area, and urged people not to call their offices. They declined to provide the number of casualties, saying details will be available later. Bomb sniffing dogs are on the scene.
'Just bang, bang, bang!'
Pulse describes itself as "the hottest gay bar" in the heart of Orlando.
Hours before the shooting, the club urged partygoers to attend its "Latin flavor" event Saturday night.
Jovial, well-dressed crowds heeded the call in an event that turned into a nightmare.
