One of the shooting victims captured the horrific moment that gunfire rang through the loud music at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Fla., signaling the beginning of the mass shooting that left 49 dead, the New York Post reports.

Amanda Alvear, 25, was having a good time with friends, chronicling her night out on Snapchat, uploading videos of her and her friends dancing and drinking.


However, the Post reports, at around 2 a.m. Sunday, she posted one video in which shots can be heard ringing out in the background.

“People keep asking? Yes, this is Amanda, she was creating a Snapchat story through the night. This is the last time anyone saw her; after this she did receive and answer one call,” her brother, Brian, posted on Facebook Sunday night, the Post reports.


Amanda Alvear was confirmed Monday morning to be among the dead.

“[F–k] today, goodnight,” her brother, Brian, wrote in another Facebook post upon learning of his sister’s death.


According to the Post, a family member has set up a GoFundMe page to help with funeral expenses, and the effort had raised over $11,000 of the $50,000 goal as of 4:30 p.m. ET Monday.
