Feds to Release Excerpts of Orlando Shooter’s Calls with Police

Myspace(ORLANDO, Fla.) — Later Monday morning the FBI is planning to release portions of conversations between Orlando shooter Omar Mateen and police during the deadly assault at Pulse nightclub last week.

Transcripts of those excerpts, summaries of negotiations with police and other investigative details will be released ahead of a scheduled press conference with law enforcement officials in Orlando, according to the FBI.

“What we're going to be doing … is talking more about what happened, sadly, inside the nightclub,” Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week." “We'll be releasing a partial transcript of the calls between the killer and the hostage negotiators so that people can, in fact, see the type of interaction that was had there.”

However, federal authorities will not be releasing Mateen’s pledges of allegiance to ISIS, Lynch added.
