Omar Mateen was a regular at Pulse and possibly other gay clubs.

“Sometimes he would go over in the corner and sit and drink by himself, and other times he would get so drunk he was loud and belligerent,” Ty Smith said…

Smith told the Orlando Sentinel that he saw Mateen inside at least a dozen times…

Another Pulse regular, Kevin West, told the Los Angeles Times that Mateen messaged him on and off for a year using a gay chat app.
