Flags to be half-staff for Pulse Remembrance Day in Florida

Three years ago, 49 people were killed in a shooting at the LGBTQ nightclub in Orlando.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis directed all state flags to be at half-staff for Pulse Remembrance Day.

Three years ago Wednesday, 49 people were killed in a shooting at Pulse, an LGBTQ nightclub in Orlando. Fifty-three others were injured. 

It was one of the deadliest shootings in U.S. history.

DeSantis also asked for residents around the state to pause for a moment of silence at 9 a.m. Wednesday to remember the victims.

Outside Florida and the U.S., more than 600 churches are set to ring their bells 49 times starting at noon. A ceremony is planned for 7 p.m. outside the now-closed club, which has been turned into a memorial and museum.
