By Bernie Woodall and Ben Gruber ORLANDO, Fla./FORT PIERCE, Fla. (Reuters) – FBI agents on Friday questioned a member of the Florida mosque attended by Omar Mateen, the man who shot 49 people to death at a gay nightclub, as new information surfaced revealing the killer had exhibited chronic behavioral problems during his youth.
