ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A patron who survived the Pulse nightclub massacre in Florida wants a temporary stop to the distribution of money raised for the victims until an audit is done.
Jillian Amador filed a petition for a temporary injunction as the funds are set to be distributed on Tuesday.
The OneOrlando fund has raised $29.5 million for the victims of the worst mass shooting in recent U.S. history.
Forty-nine people were killed and another 53 patrons were hospitalized after Omar Mateen opened fire at the gay nightclub in Orlando.
