'Heartbroken' family: Tampa man among Pulse victims

- A Hillsborough County family is mourning the loss of their son and brother who was killed in the Orlando nightclub attack.  The Sanfeliz family says they received word this morning that Christopher Sanfeliz had passed away after being injured in the shooting.

Christopher's brother posted an emotional message on Facebook soon after, thanking friends and family for support while asking for prayers.

"He was the light of my family and I know that he will continue to bless us and his light will be radiating down from a better place," the post said, in part.

Family members at the Carrollwood home told FOX 13's Gloriz Gomez that they preferred not to comment, other than to say they were notified of the news at 8 a.m.

According to Christopher's Facebook page, he was a Gaither High School graduate and had been working at JP Morgan Chase.

Officials in Orlando say 48 of the 49 victims killed in Sunday's attack have been identified, and dozens of wounded victims remain hospitalized.  Five of those are said to be in "grave" condition.
