Five people and the shooter are dead after a shooting at an Orlando, Florida business headquarters.
The shooting took place at Fiamma Inc., a business located on North Forsyth Road.
According to the Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings, a former employee who had been fired sometime in April returned to the business around 8 a.m.
45-year-old John Robert Neumann Jr opened fire on five former co-workers, four males and one female.
One male was transported to a local area hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The other victims were pronounced deceased at the scene.
Neumann then turned the gun on himself and took his own life.
Police say he did this just as they were about to enter the building.
Eight witness that survived the attack were also inside the business.
Police say the victims range in age from 44 to 69.
Neumann was also carrying a large hunting knife and a smaller knife but authorities say it doesn’t appear that any of the victims were stabbed.
According to Demings, the gun Numann used was semi-automatic and he re-loaded at least once.
Authorities are in the process of notifying the victims’ next of kin before releasing their names.
As for the recent terror attacks happening in Europe, Sheriff Demings said “we cannot connect this incident to any global terrorism.”
Demings also said Neumann had been accused of assaulting a former employee.
He was not changed in that incident, which took place in June 2014. The alleged victim of that assault was not one of the victims in Monday’s shooting.
