ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Five people are dead after a shooting inside a business in an industrial park on Monday.
The situation has been contained and the shooter is dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot.
Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said during a briefing Monday that the gunman was a disgruntled former employee who was fired in April.
The sheriff says the shooting is not believed to have any link to terrorism.
The shooting happened inside a business that manufactures awnings.
The sheriff says the shooter, who has not yet been identified, had been involved in a previous workplace violence incident and had been accused of battering another employee inside the business. He was not charged in that case.
The suspect was an ex-employee of the business and took his own life after killing five people, Jerry Demings, Orange County Sheriff said during a Monday morning press conference regarding the shooting.
The suspect was described as a 45-year-old male.
