    Club goers gather outside Parliament House, an LGBT nightclub, close to the one week anniversary of the Pulse nightclub mass shooting late Saturday, June 18, 2016, in Orlando, Fla.

    An Orlando nightclub is set to host a memorial marking six months since the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

    Pulse announced the "Remembering Our Angels" event Thursday on social media.

    Forty-nine people were killed and dozens more injured June 12 after gunman Omar Mateen opened fire inside the nightclub. The club will open at 1:45 a.m. Monday for candle lighting, with a moment of silence scheduled for 2:02 a.m., the time the attack began.

    Pulse will reopen at 5:30 p.m. Monday for a memorial ceremony. Local pastors are scheduled to speak, and the Orlando Gay Chorus is set to perform.

    Luis Burbano felt his bones shake when bullets started flying early Sunday at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando. At first, he thought it was part of the music. Burbano, who rushed to the aid of the injured, is now unable to sleep and struggling to understand why he was spared.
