ORLANDO: Ten Arrested At Marco Rubio Sit-In

From the Associated Press:



Police arrested 10 protesters who were holding a sit-in Monday 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 when the building closed to the public Monday evening, at the request of the building’s owner, according to the Orlando Police Department.

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. Mateen died in a hail of police gunfire after police stormed the venue following a three-hour standoff.
