The gunman who killed 49 people at a gay nightclub in Florida threatened to detonate a car rigged with bombs and to strap hostages into explosive vests, according to partial transcripts of his 911 calls released Monday.The FBI published the heavily redacted text of Omar Mateen's conversations with a dispatcher and crisis negotiators and sought to fend off criticism that police may have acted too slowly to end a three-hour standoff on June 12 at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history.No explosive vests or bombs were found in the club or the suspect's car, however, the FBI said.The transcript did not include a pledge of loyalty that authorities say Mateen made to the leader of ISIS.Investigators have conducted more than 500 interviews about the massacre, which also left 53 people wounded, Hopper said, and have processed more than 600 pieces of evidence.
