Murder expressly forbidden in Quran

I was saddened to hear the news of the gruesome shooting in Orlando on Sunday morning. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families and everyone affected by this senseless tragedy. As a Muslim, I feel that I must speak out to condemn this act and all like it. Though the name of Islam was invoked by the perpetrator, it should be made clear that acts such as these are not condoned in Islam. Murder is expressly forbidden in Quranic verses 5:33, 17:34, and 25:69.
