‘Multiple Fatalities’ in Orlando Workplace Shooting, Police Confirm

Incident comes a week before the one-year anniversary of Pulse nightclub shooting

“Multiple fatalities” are being reported following a shooting on Monday morning at a business workplace in Orlando, Florida.

CNN reported that five people, including the shooter, are dead. There is no connection to terrorism, the outlet said — it appears to be a work-related incident. The shooting was reported around 8 a.m. Monday. FBI agents are on the scene.

According to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office in Florida, the incident has been stabilized and contained. During a press conference, authorities said they received a call around 8:03 a.m. from Flamma business and they saw four people dead at the scene upon arrival. One victim died at the hospital and the shooter killed himself. The suspect was 45 years old and a “disgruntled former employee.”

The shooting comes one week before the one-year anniversary of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando. 49 people died in what is the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history. On June 12, 2016, Omar Saddiqui Mateen also injured more than 50 people when he opened fire at the gay nightclub; he was killed by police.
