Pulse Victims Learn How Donations Will Be Distributed

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — The administrator of a fund raised by donations for survivors and family members of the Florida nightclub shooting that left 49 dead is holding two meetings in Orlando to explain how the more than $20 million will be distributed.

Ken Feinberg will host the discussions Thursday at the arena where the Orlando Magic play.

Feinberg says the goal is not only to explain how the distribution will work but also to listen to the concerns of survivors and family members.

Omar Mateen opened fire at Pulse on June 12, leaving 49 people dead and injuring 53 others. He also died in a shooting with police.

The exact amount each family will get is to be determined by how much is raised by the end of September.
