Orlando Shooting: Reaction From Colorado Leaders

Updated 3:50 p.m. -- Reactions from Colorado's elected and faith leaders have been coming in as news spread that a gunman opened fire at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Fla., early Sunday, killing at least 50 people. It's the worst mass shooting in U.S. history, which President Barack Obama called an "act of terror" and an "act of hate."

"Our hearts are broken over the devastation in Orlando; but the outpouring of love & light is more powerful than any hatred behind it," Gov. John Hickenlooper said via Twitter.

Denver Mayor Michael Hancock extended condolences to the victims, praised first responders, and said he plans to attend an 8:30 p.m. vigil at Tracks nightclub in honor of the victims, and asked "the entire Denver community to join for the event."
