"I let you know, I'm in Orlando, and I did the shootings."

That's what the Orlando shooter told a 911 operator the night of the Pulse nightclub attack. 

The FBI released a partial transcript of the call. It lasted less than a minute. 

While some parts were initially redacted by the FBI, the Justice Department released a more complete version after some backlash

FBI Director James Comey already said the shooter pledged allegiance to ISIS' leader during the phone calls. 

"During the calls, he said he was doing this for the leader of ISIL, who he named and pledged loyalty to," Comey said.

This doesn't mean the shooter was being directed by ISIS. 

It just means he may have been radicalized by ISIS propaganda.
