Multiple deaths confirmed after shooting in Orlando

ORLANDO — Five people are dead following a shooting at a business near Orlando.

According to law enforcement, the incident happened around 8 a.m. Monday when a former employee who was fired back in April opened fire.

Four people were killed on the scene and a fifth died at the hospital.

The suspect killed himself.

The sheriff said the shooting is a case of workplace violence, not an act of terrorism.

The location is an industrial area in suburban Orlando, northeast of downtown.

Forsyth Road was closed near Hanging Moss Road, WFTV reports.

Police officers gathered in a parking lot outside several warehouses.

The shootings apparently occurred at Fiamma Inc., which makes awnings for campers and other recreational vehicles.

Shelley Adams told reporters she heard from her sister, who works at Fiamma and was in the restroom when she heard a noise. She came out and saw someone lying on the floor.

“She said, ‘I saw too much. My boss is dead,'” Adams said.

The FBI is on the scene.

This is a breaking news story.
