Attorney General Loretta Lynch visited with relatives of victims in the Orlando massacre, told the gay community "we stand with you" and was briefed by law enforcement officials still trying to determine why the gunman targeted a popular gay nightclub.Lynch's Justice Department and local police continue to investigate the June 12 attack at the Pulse nightclub, in which 49 people were killed and dozens more wounded. More clues emerged about the attack Monday when the FBI released a partial transcript of phone calls Mateen had with a 911 operator and police crisis negotiators once the shooting got underway.The shooting has fostered discussion about U.S. government efforts to identify and thwart individuals bent on violence -- Mateen had been interviewed by the FBI three times since 2013 as part of two separate investigations and placed on a terror watch list -- but also about whether stiffer gun control laws are needed.
