The Orlando Sentinel and ABC News have obtained police body camera footage that shows tense scenes inside and outside the Pulse nightclub during the June 12 mass shooting that killed 49 people. In the two dozen videos released under a public records request, officers can be seen arriving at the scene of the shooting at the LGBT club, treating victims, and searching the inside of the club. One video shows "chaos erupt" after a SWAT team blows a hole in the side of a building, the Sentinel reports. "Did they clear everyone out?" a deputy asks. "They clear everyone out? Hold up, what's going on? ... No way everyone is dead in there." (The city of Orlando is going to buy the club and turn it into a memorial.)
