Nightclub shooting protesters arrested at Rubio office

Police have arrested 10 protesters who were holding a sit-in in the lobby of the building where U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio has his Orlando office on the month anniversary of a massacre at a gay nightclub.
The protesters were arrested on misdemeanor trespass charges Monday evening, when the building closed to the public, at the request of the building's owner.
Dozens of protesters started the 49-hour sit-in Monday to remember the 49 victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting.
Gunman Omar Mateen opened fire at Pulse on June 12 in a rampage that left 49 victims dead and injured 53 at the gay nightclub. 
The protesters said they were targeting Rubio because of the support he has gotten from the National Rifle Association and his opposition to same-sex marriage.
