Amanda Alvear, 25, was at Orlando's Pulse Nightclub Sunday morning when a gunman opened fire in the gay bar.

Alvear was one of the 49 people killed when gunman, Omar Mateen began firing at club-goers.

Mateen was later killed by police during a standoff.

On Sunday, Alvear's friend posted her Snapchat story to Facebook. She had Snapchatted right before her death.

She was seen dancing with her friends at Pulse. The final video showed the camera pointed at herself while gunshots echoed in the background.

On Facebook, her friend wrote, "Found out thru snapchat my friend Amanda Alvear was there at Pulse last night. Tried calling and texting and still haven't gotten a reply."

On Monday, her friend posted another Facebook status. He wrote, "You're here today and in a snap you could be gone tomorrow.Stuck with images of your face feeling the confusing and fear."

President Barack Obama will meet with his national security team for a briefing on counter-ISIS measures.
