Seattle's gay mayor: Slayings were to intimidate

Posted: Updated:
(AP) -

Seattle's openly gay Mayor Ed Murray says that every time progress is made in the U.S., there's a blow back and an increase in gay lesbian bisexual transgender violence.

Murray made the remarks Sunday after a gunman slaughtered 50 people in a gay nightclub in Orlando.

Murray says the massacre is absolutely an attempt at intimidation and fear.

He says the community will come together and will not be intimidated.
