petition for change of name

This petition for change-of-name written by Omar Mateen says that he was born on the Queens side of New Hyde Park.

Omar Mateen, the gunman behind the attack in Orlando early Sunday morning that is now known as the worst mass shooting in American history, was born in New Hyde Park.

The killer's place of birth was first revealed by Guardian reporter Spencer Ackerman, who tweeted a petition for change of name that Mateen submitted to the state of Florida 

The document says that he was born on Nov. 16, 1986 in New Hyde Park, on the Queens side.
