Daniel Gilroy, former Fort Pierce police officer who once worked with Mateen has now spoken out on the type of person he was. Gilroy says Mateen was “unhinged and unstable.” Gilroy worked a shift with G4S Security at the south gate at PGA Village for several months. His hours were 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Mateen worked from 3pm to 11pm. He says Mateen made homophobic and racial remarks all the time. Gilroy actually quit his job due to the fact that Mateen began stalking him sending him 20-30 text messages a day. He also sent Gilroy 13-15 phone messages a day. The higher up’s at the job did nothing to help stop the stalking.

Gilroy says,

“I quit because everything he said was toxic and the company wouldn’t do anything. This guy was unhinged and unstable. He talked of killing people.”

The shooting was actually no surprise to Gilroy. PGA Village resident Eleanora Dorsi saw a much different side of Mateen. She called him the friendly guard who greeted her daily. Dorsi says she had nothing bad to say about Mateen because he was always so nice.

“Whenever I saw him, he was very polite. He was always a gentleman.”

The shooting was actually a shock to her.

“You would never ever think that he would have done anything like this. Scary, scary. Very scary. I think everyone feels like that right now,” she added. “It hits too close to home.”

Imam Muhammad Musri, the president of the Islamic Society of Central Florida says,

“I want to also caution many of the media from rushing to judgment,” he said. “We are mourning. We are sad. We are heartbroken, and it’s not really time to…rush to judgment. We condemn the person who did this, whatever ideology he had. No lives should be lost because of anger and hate. I condemn all acts of terrorism, especially those done in the name of my faith,” he said. “It’s heartbreaking to see this in my beloved city of Orlando. We’re in mourning.”

Our hearts go out to all the lives taken due to this tragic incident.
