ORLANDO (CBSMiami/AP) – As the day progresses, details about the suspected shooter who killed 50 people and injured 53 more continue to trickle out.

Omar Mateen, the Orlando nightclub gunman, had been licensed as a private security officer in Florida.

State records show suspected shooter Mateen held the firearms license since at least 2011.

It was set to expire in September 2017.

It wasn’t immediately clear where, if anywhere, Mateen had worked as a security officer.

An armed guard license in Florida requires 28 hours of classroom training by a licensed instructor.
