Orlando Shooting: 5 People killed Including Suspect

Orlando Shooting at Fiamma

Orlando Shooting: Five people, including the shooter, are dead after a shooting at an Orlando, Florida business industrial area. Police say there is no association with terrorism. It gives off an impression of being a business related incident.

The shooter, a 45-year-old man, was armed with a handgun and a blade and shot three men and a lady before he turned the weapon on himself, Sheriff Jerry L. Demings told reporters Monday. The man clearly had been fired from his job by Fiamma Incorporated in April.

Seven individuals the sheriff called "survivors" were not harmed amid the occurrence but rather were being interviewed. He included that the presumed shooter had obviously been included in another work environment brutality occurrence in June 2014.

Police reported earlier they were investigating a "multiple casualty" shooting, as per Capt. Angelo Nieves with the Orange County Sheriff's Office. The sheriff's office calls the circumstance "contained and stable".

"Over the past year, the Orlando community has been challenged like never before," Scott said in a statement. "I ask all Floridians to pray for the families impacted by this senseless act of violence."

The area is a industrial area in rural Orlando, northeast of downtown. Forsyth Road was shut close Hanging Moss Road.
