ORLANDO, Fla. – The onePULSE Foundation is asking for information that could lead to a man who was caught on camera setting fire to Pulse’s temporary memorial.
The foundation posted on Facebook Saturday surveillance video showing a man in a wheelchair setting fire to the offering wall, a site meant to remember the lives lost in the Pulse nightclub mass shooting in 2016.
According to the Facebook post, the incident happened on Oct. 12 around 8:30 p.m.
The foundation said three angel banners were burned along with other items near the area.
They are working with two families, whose loved ones were featured on two of the damaged banners, to replace all the banners.
The interim memorial is the future location of the Pulse National Memorial, according to foundation officials.
Officials with the foundation are asking anyone with information to call Orlando police at 407-246-2470.
