Fox 35 has obtained paperwork that indicates that the site of the Pulse Nightclub shooting could be turned into a permanent Orlando memorial.

OnePulse Foundation, a 501(c)(3) incorporated by the owners of Pulse Nightclub and established to provide assistance to the victims of the mass shooting, filed the paperwork with the State of Florida earlier this month.

Forty-nine people were killed and dozens more injured when a gunman opened fire at the club on June 12. The shooter, Omar Mateen, was killed by police. He pledged his allegiance to the Islamic State.

Through its social media, OnePulse Foundation says the permanent memorial is meant to provide "a sanctuary of hope dedicated to the lives affected and taken by the tragedy."
