The Pulse nightclub in Orlando was the site of the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history, and now some of its victims are seeking help to help others who were killed.
In the days since the deadly shooting, survivors, friends and loved ones have shared their experiences and offered their support to those who were affected by the attack.
Here’s what you need to know about the victims and their families.
Teddy Smith, a survivor of the attack, was at the Orlando area on Sunday night to attend the second anniversary of the shooting when he saw a car drive by with people inside, but no one was there to help him.
He said the car drove past him as he walked toward the bar and stopped, then he saw an older man on the passenger side holding a rifle.
The man, who Smith identified as an acquaintance, then walked away.
Smith said he turned around and saw a young man on top of him.
He said he grabbed the younger man’s rifle and pulled the trigger, hitting him in the head.
The bullet passed through his neck and he passed out, Smith said.
The other victim was on top and hit him in his right shoulder.
He woke up to a man on his right, who was also wounded in the neck, he said.
Another survivor, a friend of Smith, said the attacker was wearing a black mask and carrying a backpack with a white baseball bat.
He was armed with a rifle and appeared to be firing a handgun, the friend said.
Another friend, a bartender who was at Pulse on Sunday, said a man in the bar who didn’t want to be identified said the shooter was a white man wearing a camouflage shirt.
He told the bartender the attacker appeared to have a gun, but he didn’t know if it was a real gun or not.
The assailant was not wearing a mask, the bartender said.
A man with a handgun was seen running down the street with a gun and yelling, “Shoot me!”
The shooting was the worst mass shooting incident in the United States since the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, in December 2012, killing 20 children and six adults.
The gunman was later killed by police.
A new law passed earlier this year requires licensed firearms dealers to report mass shootings to the FBI within 72 hours, and the ATF said it will also send out a hotline to victims and family members to offer information.
