Orlando Police release 'Running Man Challenge' video with special dedication



Orlando Police released a "Running Man Challenge" video that the department created two months ago but withheld because of the mass shooting at the gay nightclub Pulse on June 12 that left 49 people dead.

"That video was set to be released on Monday, June 13," OPD says in a press release. "In the wake of the Pulse tragedy, we did not release the video."

The released video features dancing officers, the Jones High School Marching Band and a special dedication at the end from OPD Chief John Mina encouraging Orlando to keep dancing.
