The state's top public safety official says he will hold discussions with Massachusetts law enforcement and reach out the LGBTQ community to help provide assurances about safety and security in the wake of the deadly attack at a gay nightclub in Orlando.

Secretary of Public Safety Dan Bennett planned a meeting on Monday with the police chiefs of the state's largest cities and with the Gay Officers Action League, an organization representing LGBTQ officers.

Republican Gov. Charlie Baker said the shooting that killed 49 people and injured at least 53 more hit close to home for him. He said his brother, Alex, who is gay and married, told him the shooting was a reminder that some people have hatred for gay people for no reason, even as overall tolerance improves.
