Security stepped up at LA Pride Parade after Orlando shooting

While nerves rattled by the mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, a suspect carrying guns and explosive materials was arrested in Santa Monica, California Sunday morning. Security was dramatically increased at the 46th LA Pride Parade and festival in West Hollywood.

Organizers said they would not bow to the threat of terrorism. Law enforcement agencies across Los Angeles went on tactical alert and deployed patrols and undercover officers to protect the floats and marchers.
