After the mass shooting that happened this morning, hundreds of people waited in line to give blood, said former Caledonia resident and Horlick High School graduate Thomas Ryan.

Fifty people are dead in a mass shooting that happened Sunday morning at a nightclub in Orlando, according to a story by CNN.

Ryan lives in Orlando, Florida. He took the video at Winter garden Village Shopping Center.

“Every radio station is just talking about the shooting. Making sure my friends are safe. Haven’t known any one that has been killed. The police have only released 4 of the 49 victims,” he said. “There were probably 150-200 wanting to donate at that specific place. We heard 2k at one of the main places.”
