A man who claims to have been a former lover of Orlando nightclub gunman, Omar Mateen, said he acted out of ‘revenge’.
The man, revealed only as Miguel, said Mateen was ‘terrified’ after learning a previous partner was HIV positive.
‘I've cried like you have no idea,' Miguel told Spanish-language television network Univision. ‘But the thing that makes me want to tell the truth is that he didn't do it for terrorism. In my opinion he did it for revenge.’
Miguel claims Mateen had sex with two two Puerto Rican men, and later found out one of them was HIV positive.
