Orlando officers receive counseling after Pulse nightclub attack


Several officials held a press conference Wednesday afternoon to update the public on the latest information in the Pulse nightclub terror attack.

The briefing included FBI agent Ronald Hopper, Orlando Police Chief John Mina, U.S Attorney Lee Bentley, Governor Rick Scott, and others. 

Hopper said he couldn't provide any significant updates in the investigation, but urged anyone with any information about the shooter to contact the FBI.

"We need your help developing a complete picture of what the shooter did and why he did it," Hopper said.

Chief Mina went into detail about how police officers who were involved in the Pulse shooting are doing.

“No one can prepare you for what those officers encountered that night," Mina said.

He explained that the officers have received and will continue to receive counseling. Counselors held one session as a group with many officers, but also are meeting with officers individually.

“They performed heroically and courageously, and I’m extremely, extremely proud of them," Mina said.
