      Houston, Texas: 0 dead, 6 injured
      At about 6:30 AM, a man dressed in a military uniform with Nazi insignia identified in some reports as Nathan Desai, a local lawyer, opened fire with a .45-caliber semi-automatic handgun and a .45-caliber submachine gun on seemingly random cars passing on the roads outside his condominium in the West University area. The shooter, who moved between trees for cover and his nearby Porsche Boxster to reload out of a cache of over 2,500 rounds of ammunition, ultimately struck six individuals; three more were wounded with shattered glass from car or building windows hit by his bullets. All of the gunshot victims were hospitalized. As of publication three had been released while one was listed in critical, one in serious, and one in good condition. Responding authorities shot and killed the suspect after a brief encounter.

As of publication, individuals who knew Desai noted that he'd been acting erratic and paranoid for months and had, in February, dissolved a 12-year legal partnership; since then his legal career had been struggling, apparently to Desai's distress.

      At about 2 AM, a lone shooter armed with an assault rifle and a handgun—since identified as 29-year-old Omar Mateen of Fort Pierce—walked into Pulse, a gay nightclub with about 320 people in attendance at the time. A police officer working at the club engaged him in a gunfight after hearing shots fired, but Mateen still managed to enter the club and open fire on the over 100 patrons who were still in the building, initiating a hostage situation. SWAT and other law enforcement officials responded; after several hours of shooting, they decided to try to save the hostages at around 5 AM, setting off a controlled explosion to distract Mateen and ramming the club with an armored vehicle. Nine officers engaged him; one was injured in the head (but saved by his helmet), while the shooter was shot and confirmed dead just before 6 AM. Responders believe about 30 people remaining inside were saved. The Federal Bureau of Investigation was exploring this case as a potential act of domestic terror, with officials reportedly having investigated Mateen in the past. The shooter's father has said that the attack had nothing to do with religion, but noted that his son got angry when he saw two men kissing in Miami months ago. After the attack, it was reported Mateen had pledged allegiance to ISIS just before or as he carried it out, and the group claimed responsibility as well.

Initial investigations revealed six adults and one 16-year-old boy shot dead in the head "execution style," some of them still in bed, across three nearby trailer homes on the same stretch of rural road.

Two infants, days old and four-months old, were found alive on the sites (the latter in bed with one of the female victims), as well as a three-year-old child. The child has been hospitalized, but it is unclear if they were actually wounded. An eighth body, from the same family and killed in a similar fashion, was discovered in the early afternoon at a fourth site about 30 miles away from the others. There are no initial signs of any suicide victims and police suspect the assailant(s) are not among the dead, nor have they made any arrests.
