A Cleveland man was identified Monday as one of 49 killed in a shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando

Luis Omar Ocasio-Capo, 20, who went by Omar, is originally from Cleveland and his mother still lives here. His sister tells Cleveland 19 reporter Lydia Esparra, “Omar was a baby.”

A GoFundMe account was set up for funeral expenses for his family.

Fifty-three others were injured early Sunday morning. After three hours, police stormed the club where the gunman, Omar Mateen, was holding hostages in a restroom. Last of the bodies were removed from the club Monday morning.
