The owner of a Florida gun store said Orlando nightclub shooter Omar Mateen tried to buy body armor and bulk ammunition from his store just a few weeks before the shooting but his staff turned him away.
"We knew by the questions he was asking he was suspicious," Robert Abell, a co-owner of Lotus Gunworks in Jensen Beach, Florida, told ABC News. An an alert salesperson refused to sell to Mateen, and Abell said he contacted authorities about Mateen before the massacre.
The local sheriff's office said it was unaware of the incident at the gun store, and other local authorities, including the local FBI office, have not responded to ABC News' requests for comment.
The FBI is aware of and is investigating Mateen's visit to Lotus, officials said.IT'S TOO FUCKING LATE, LOTUS FLOWER.
