New York City is deploying more than 500 anti-terrorism officers around the city as a precaution after Sunday's gay nightclub massacre in Orlsndo, Florida, the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

Mayor De Blasio and Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo will attend a vigil Monday at the Stonewall Inn in Manhattan. Hundreds of people gathered there Sunday, with some chanting, "No hate!" and "More love!"

Law enforcement officials were in Penn Station's Amtrak area on Monday with a machine that's used for swabbing bags to check for bomb residue.

Transportation Security Administration officials, police and National Guardsmen dressed in fatigues patrolled the station — a fairly familiar sight since 9/11.
