A man who had been fired in April from his job at a Florida company opened fire Monday at the Orlando business, killing five people before taking his own life, authorities said.
Four people were killed at the scene, while a fifth died at the hospital, Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings told reporters. Seven people survived the ordeal.
The business, Fiamma, makes awnings for recreational vehicles.
Demings said the incident was being treated as a ‘workplace violence incident’ and did not appear to have any links to terror.
