CT native among victims of Orlando nightclub shooting

This morning flags are flying at half-staff in Connecticut and across the country to honor the lives of nearly 50 people who were shot to death in what authorities are calling the deadliest terror attack since Sept. 11.



The FBI says a gunman, who has been investigated for potential ties to terrorism, opened fire inside a popular gay nightclub in Orlando early yesterday morning.



So far, around 25 of the victims' names have been released, and published reports are linking one of them to Connecticut.



Kimberly Morris was reportedly from Torrington and worked as a bouncer at the nightclub.
