According to authorities, Marissa Delgado, who grew up in Glen Cove and currently lives in Orlando, was shot 12 times when a gunman opened fire in the packed nightclub. Published reports say 50 people, including the gunman, were killed in the shooting, while 53 others were injured. According to a Facebook post by Delgado’s mother, the critically injured Glen Cove native is alive and is recovering from surgery.

Reports state the gunman specifically targeted Pulse because it is a gay nightclub. Officials are calling the attack the worst in U.S. history since 9/11.
