Survivors and loved ones of the Pulse Nightclub shooting victims are filing a lawsuit against the city of Orlando.

The federal suit, announced this week, alleges the officers made a conscious decision to allow the shooter to continue his massacre, while prioritizing their own safety.

The families and survivors say — had the officers been trained to pursue such an attacker, many of the victims would have either survived or not been injured.

“What if the Orlando police officers who responded to the shooting were aggressive with their plan to rescue victims and hostages, and kill the shooter — would my brother still be alive?” asked Berto Capo, brother of Pulse victim Luis Ocasio-Capo. “What if the city of Orlando had better trained police officers –would my brother (still be) alive?”

The suit references individual officers who responded to the shooting, and claims uninjured survivors were held in poor conditions at Orlando Police headquarters in the hours after the shooting.
