ORLANDO: The gunman who went on a rampage at a gay nightclub in Orlando, killing 49 people, has been buried in South Florida.

A death certificate issued Thursday shows that the body of 29-year-old Omar Mateen was buried at the Muslim Cemetery of South Florida in Hialeah Gardens near Miami.

The certificate doesn't say when Mateen was buried.

It indicates that Mateen's father, Seddique Mateen, provided the Orange County Bureau of Vital Statistics with information to complete the death certificate.

No one answered the phone Thursday at the Muslim Cemetery of South Florida.

The FBI says Mateen opened fire in the crowded Pulse nightclub on June 12. In a 911 call from the club, he pledged solidarity with the Islamic State group. He was killed by police after a three-hour standoff.
