Mateen called 911 and swore allegiance to ISIS before the attack.
The New York Daily News reported:

Omar Mateen, the lone gunman in the deadliest shooting in American history, was an abusive and homophobic menace who pledged allegiance to ISIS shortly before his massacre, authorities and relatives said.

Mateen, 29, declared his devotion to ISIS in a 911 call right before killing at least 50 people at the Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando, Fla. Sunday morning, according to NBC News.

Authorities deemed the attack an act of terrorism, and a congressman said the FBI investigated the would-be killer about three years ago.

“He was subject to an FBI investigation, there was some information passed along that caused them to look at him, but it didn’t seem to rise to the level of terrorism,” Rep. Pete King (R-NY), Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, told the Daily News.
